Storms Kick Up Heavy Dust In Central Kansas

KSAL StaffApril 28, 2014

Storms that roared through the Midwest kicked up dust in drought-stricken western Kansas, causing a multi-car accident in Oklahoma just across the Kansas border and severely reducing visibility farther east.

Tyrone, Okla., fire chief Anthony Adams says the blowing dust caused accidents involving 12 vehicles on U.S. 54 one mile south of the Kansas-Oklahoma border near Liberal. One report said the visibility was reduced to less than 5 feet.

Adams says only minor injuries were reported. It took four hours to reopen the highway.

The strong winds blew dust east to the Wichita and Salina areas. At one point Sunday afternoon, visibility was only one mile near Salina and only three miles at the Wichita Mid-Continent Airport.
