Damaging Severe Weather Rolls Through Area

KSAL StaffJune 15, 2017

Damaging severe weather rolled across Central Kansas late Thursday afternoon into Thursday evening.

Severe storms initially formed mid-afternoon in the Hays area. The storms then slowly moved southeast.

The main threat was large hail and strong wind. Damaging straight line wind in excess of 70 miles per hour was clocked, and hail as large as tennis balls fell in some areas.

There was some damage reported south of Salina, where heavy rain and 70 mile-per-hour wind was reported along the Saline / McPherson County line. Semis were blown over, as was a pickup truck pulling a boat. In the Assaria and Lindsborg areas large branches and trees were blown down, as were power lines.

The storms also prompted tornado warnings in parts of Ellis, Dickinson, and Morris Counties. No tornadoes were reported.
