KSAL Staff - June 26, 2017 8:04 pm
An isolated storm that quickly developed, and quickly intensified, caused some damage in a portion of east Salina early Monday evening.
The storm generated a tornado warning for eastern Saline County for a brief period of time. The warning was generated by a public report of a tornado in the area of County Club and Simpson Roads.
The storm did cause damage in the Country Club area. Numerous branches, trees, and even some power lines were down.
On Interstate 70, near the Ohio Street exit, a semi was blown over.
Officials Monday evening were working to determine if it was a brief tornado, or strong straight line wind that caused the damage.
A video sent to KSAL confirms that there was possibly a developing tornado.
As the storm passed it dropped heavy rain, hail up to the size of quarters, and very strong wind.
