Damaging Storms Bring 80-MPH-Wind

KSAL StaffJuly 13, 2016

For the second consecutive day damaging severe weather rolled through Central Kansas. Storms that developed west of Hays quickly intensified.

The heaviest storms rolled through portions of Ellis, Russell and Lincoln counties.

The storms dropped heavy rain, and produced strong wind. Wind up to 80 miles-per-hour posed the biggest threat.

The wind caused widespread damage in the communities of Hays and Russell, bringing down limbs, trees, and powerlines.

As the storms approached the Salina area, they split. The heaviest portions passed to the north, and south of Salina. The peak wind gust in Salina was measured at 54 miles-per-hour.

More storms are possible Thursday afternoon and evening in Central Kansas.
