In Wichita, Kan., a tornado touched down near Mid-Continent Airport on the city’s southwest side shortly before 4 p.m., knocking out power to thousands of homes and businesses but bypassing the most populated areas of Kansas’ biggest city.
Golf ball-sized hail slammed homes in the area. Jim Raulston, of Wichita, said the ferocious winds slammed the hailstones into his home.
Sedgwick County Emergency Management Director Randy Duncan said there were no reports of fatalities or injuries in Kansas.
The weather service reported two tornadoes touched down in Iowa – near Huxley and Earlham. Damage included the loss of some cattle when the storm blew over a barn on a farm in Mitchell County. Some 11,000 homes were without power early Monday.
In Oklahoma, aerial television news footage showed homes with significant damage northeast of Oklahoma City. Some outbuildings appeared to have been leveled, and some homes’ roofs or walls had been knocked down.
Some of the same areas that were hit by yesterday’s storms are under threat again today.
“The probabilities from the SPC (Storm Prediction Center) for storms today are actually higher this morning than they were at this time yesterday,” says Cantore. “The National Weather Service wants to get the surveys of this damage done early today since these same areas are under threat again today.”
Communities in North Texas are beginning the process of recovery after an outbreak of 16 tornadoes killed 6 people, injured up to 100 people, and damaged or destroyed hundreds of homes.
As the sun set Thursday, the National Weather Service damage surveys said as many as 16 tornadoes had slammed through the area, killing two women and four men in the Hood County town of Granbury.
The violent spring storm scattered bodies and threw trailers onto cars while leaving many, possibly hundreds, homeless in Granbury and Cleburne after an untold number of houses were reduced to nothing more than a concrete slab and a pile of rubble.
