Violent Weather Pounds Southern Kansas

KSCB News - May 1, 2012 6:00 am

DODGE CITY, Kan. (AP) – Violent weather has been pounding

southwestern and south-central Kansas with hail, funnel clouds and

a couple of tornado sightings, but there have been no immediate

reports of damage or injury.

The National Weather Service in Dodge City began issuing tornado

warnings shortly after 5 p.m. Monday, mostly based on Doppler radar

showing strong rotation. At least eight counties were under tornado

warnings of varying lengths over the next few hours.

The emergency manager in Comanche County reported a tornado near

Coldwater Lake around 7 p.m. Earlier, Kiowa County law enforcement

reported a brief, rain-wrapped four miles southwest of Greensburg.

The twister lifted quickly but spawned a funnel cloud a short

distance away.

Funnel clouds were spotted by storm chasers and law enforcement

in Barber and Clark counties.
