Microburst blamed for damage in Cape Girardeau

Saturday, 02 November 2013 08:31 Published in Local News

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) — A microburst is being blamed for storm damage in Cape Girardeau.

The storm struck Thursday night, making for a treacherous Halloween, but there were no reports of injuries.

The Southeast Missourian reports that winds of up to 95 miles per hour were reported on the city's south side.

The National Weather Service concluded the storm was the result of a microburst, though officials with the service say a weak tornado struck East Cape Girardeau, Ill. The twister had winds peaking at 80 mph.

Rain was heavy during the storm, and winds knocked over trees and downed power lines in Cape Girardeau. At one point, more than 2,000 customers of the utility Ameren Missouri were without power. Most electricity was restored by Friday afternoon.

Man hit in eye by a hot dog, suing Kansas City Royals

Friday, 01 November 2013 15:11 Published in Local News

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Missouri Supreme Court is weighing whether a legal standard that protects sports teams from being sued over fan injuries caused by in-game events should also apply to those caused by mascots or other team personnel.

The court's ruling on John Coomer's lawsuit against the Kansas City Royals could affect how major sports teams engage their fans during games.

Coomer says he was hit in the eye by a foil-wrapped hot dog thrown by the Royals' mascot four years ago. The Kansas man says he's had to endure two eye surgeries and that his vision was permanently damaged.

The team argues that it should be protected by the so-called "baseball rule." That legal standard holds that fans assume the risk of being struck by foul balls or stray pucks at games.
