For the second day in a row severe weather rolls through Kansas. Saturday it was Western Kansas that felt the brunt of it, while Sunday it was Southeast Kansas.

Authorities say a tornado has touched down in Wichita but emergency officials say there are no injuries or fatalities.

Sedgwick County emergency management director Randy Duncan says officials are “very grateful.” He added that there are few damage reports.

Weather service meteorologists say the twister touched down on the southwest side of the city near Wichita Mid-Continent Airport shortly before 4:00 on Sunday and was moving northeast at 30 mph. It was wrapped in rain, and it wasn’t clear how long it was on the ground. The National Weather Service described the tornado as “large, violent and extremely dangerous.”

In Central Kansas, large hail battered portions of Ottawa County. Hail up to golf ball size fell in the Bennington area.

On Saturday night the Ottawa County community of Minneapolis was hit by straight-line severe thunderstorm wind. Wind estimated at 80 – 100 miles per hour damaged multiple homes and businesses.
