Tornado Damages More than 500 Cars at Mo. Dealership
May 24, 2019—The owner of a Chevrolet dealership said Wednesday night’s tornado in Jefferson City, Mo., damaged or destroyed more than 500 cars, according to a report by KSHB.
The tornado flipped numerous cars on top of each other at the Riley Toyota Scion and Riley Chevrolet Buick GMC, a dealership Jay Schnieders' great-grandfather started in 1936. Glass was scattered all over the pavement from cars now without windows, according to The Kansas City Star.
Schnieders estimated nearly 500 vehicles were damaged, likely totaling at least $15 million. Another relative guessed it was closer to $30 million, not including used cars and the structural damage.
