NWS: Hail, damaging winds, flash floods threaten KC Wednesday night

An enhanced risk for severe storms stretches from Western Oklahoma to northern Missouri - including Wichita, Kansas, and Kansas City, Missouri - and an area from central Oklahoma to central Kansas will be more at risk for tornadoes than any other location Wednesday.

For the second day in a row, tornadoes developed near Tescott and Culver in Ottawa County, but the newest twisters were weak and short-lived.

Severe thunderstorms are expected across parts of the southern and central Plains into the middle Mississippi Valley on Wednesday, which could bring another round of tornadoes, it said.

Harper County Emergency Management Director says no injuries have been reported and the only known damage is a tree that was blown down onto a road. No damage was reported.

Some areas could receive up to 2 inches of rain in a short period from the initial round of thunderstorms Wednesday. "Small hail and another beneficial rain - exactly what we needed".

They rated a tornado in Saline and Ottawa Counties as an EF-3, with winds of up to 143 miles per hour. It stayed on the ground for nearly thirty minutes. Rated at an EF-1, the tornado lasted 11 minutes, traveling more than five miles. It was narrow, measuring just 30 yards wide.

"Storms today are forecast to be more linear in nature, which will lead to more damaging winds than tornadoes".
