CORDOVA - Tuesday night's thunderstorms proved to be more severe than originally expected, leaving trees down and powerless homes in its wake.

At 7:30 p.m., an emergency flash flood warning was issued for the area. A hailstorm lasted for only a few minutes in the Cordova area, but some were unable to reach their homes due to fallen trees, and many residents had no power for a brief time period in the subsequent evening hours.
