KANSAS CITY (5/5/08)--Some Missouri credit unions experienced power outages late Thursday and early Friday after storms bringing a tornado and straight-line winds swept through Kansas City, said the Missouri Credit Union Association (MCUA). There were no reports of credit unions suffering serious damage as of Friday afternoon, said MCUA (CourierNet May 2). Missouri Family FCU, Independence, was without power for most of Friday morning but power was restored at 12:30 p.m., President Stan Boursheski reported to MCUA. About half of the building remained without power Friday late afternoon. MCUA said it had not been able to make contact with several other credit unions in areas that suffered significant damages. Homes and businesses were damaged, predominantly in the northeast Kansas City area.
