First Winter Storm Covers County in Snow

November 26, 2018

Sleet and snow covered Ralls County Sunday, November 25, and early Monday, November 26. Although it was reported that Hannibal received 5” of snow and Perry 2” of snow, it was hard to determine the exact amount of snowfall in specific places due to winds and drifting. The weather service did report anywhere from 2-8” in the Ralls County area.

Students had an extra day of Thanksgiving Break when Ralls County schools were closed Monday as were Hannibal, Monroe City, and Paris. The basketball games scheduled at Monroe City and the Junior High Basketball Tournament have been postponed.

Ralls County Road and Bridge crews were out before 5 a.m. Monday morning clearing roads and removing a few trees that had fallen during the night. Town crews were also out clearing streets in New London, Center, and Perry.
