Early morning storm in Topeka leaves thousands without power

KSAL StaffAugust 8, 2015

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – A thunderstorm that moved through Topeka early Saturday has left thousands without power.

National Weather Service Meteorologist Chris Sanders said 50-60 mph wind gusts accompanied the storm, which hit Topeka at about 4:35 a.m. and moved to the east an hour later. The city received as much as 1.5 inches of rain.

The Topeka Capital Journal (http://bit.ly/1Nhq54C) reports that the Westar Energy outage map shows more than 5,000 customers in Topeka were left without power in the storm’s aftermath.

Sanders said the city will remain dry throughout Saturday and into the evening with a high around 95 degrees.
