KSAL StaffMay 7, 2015

Several Kansas counties report property damage from severe storms which swept through the state from south to north Wednesday. The storms produced heavy rain, high winds, large hail and an outbreak of tornadoes.

The Kansas Division of Emergency Management has received damage reports from six counties: Harvey, Sedgwick, Jewell, Lincoln and Republic Counties.

Only one injury has been reported so far, in Jewell County.

Republic County Emergency Management reports damage to five homes and an ethanol plant near Scandia. In addition, a feedlot operation was struck by an apparent tornado, and as many as 150 head of cattle were killed.

In Jewell County, one home was destroyed west of Mankato and another home damaged east of Mankato.

Harvey County emergency officials report that a hog barn was destroyed southeast of Burrton.

Two homes were damaged near Wichita in Sedgwick County.

In Lincoln County, officials report damage to an outbuilding at an electric company on the east edge of the town of Lincoln, as well as damage to trees in a cemetery.

Additionally, these counties and others report numerous power lines down and damaged and uprooted trees.
