A low-flying military jet from a western Missouri Air Force base clipped several power lines, but officials said no injuries were reported.
The A-10 Thunderbolt military jet from Whiteman Air Force base hit several power lines that cross Stockton Lake, near Bona, about 30 miles northwest of Springfield. A-10 Thunderbolts are single-seat, twin-engine attack jets.
Crews have been working to mark the lake to keep boaters away from submerged power lines.
