Kansas hit by more than 80 reported tornadoes in a week


The Associated Press

Nearly 90 tornadoes were reported in Kansas as of Monday, in a rough weather week that also included storms with large hail and record rainfall.

"It's been kind of overwhelming," said Larry Ruthi, meteorologist in charge of the Dodge City branch of the National Weather Service. "On Friday evening, we had five (large tornadoes) on the ground at the same time. ... It's pretty amazing."

Four people are believed to have died and several more were reported injured in the storms, officials said.

"We just had a constant barrage of storms, firing up along all these different boundaries," said Chance Hayes, warning coordination meteorologist at the Wichita branch of the National Weather Service. "Typically this time of year they're going to move through pretty quickly. But we just had one round after another."

According to preliminary data collected by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Storm Prediction Center, 87 tornadoes were reported in Kansas on Thursday, Friday and Sunday.

The final number will likely be lower, officials say, because some of those reports are likely to be different angles of the same tornado.

While WaKeeney and Protection both reported damage from tornadoes, meteorologists said tornadoes nearly hit more than a dozen other cities, including Greensburg.

A wedge tornado lifted just before it reached Quinter on Friday night, and it touched back down again on the other side of town. A second large tornado passed just west of the town the same evening.

A tornado bearing down on Kinsley on Friday night lifted south of town, went over the Edwards County seat and touched down again on the other side of town, Ruthi said.

Another tornado fell apart as it neared Ransom on Friday night, he said.

"It definitely could have been much worse," Hayes said

At least no earthquake yet, why do I like in this state?????

This year you seem to be getting a lot more tornados than we are in Oklahoma. We Keep flooding. The Verdigris river goes by my house and it is up from the rain in Kansas.
Keep it covered. Good Luck

I was in Grove Okla on Grand lake about 15 years ago and the Verdigris river came twelve feet in one night and flooded the roads around the docks at Shangra La resort. The rain was in Kansas then too,Bubble%20Bath very impressive overnight change.

I feel for you guys down there in Kansas.  I saw a tornado hit my hometown about 10 years ago.  The power and destruction was unbelievable.  And that was nothing compared to the ones in Kansas.  Any near you Duce?

We have been lucky this year nothing close yet, when the Andover tornado went through several years ago it was two miles south of us and one went through one mile north of me the same day. Only blew down part of my fence and a few shingles. My sister-in-law`s house in Andover was completely missing when she got home that day, a three bedroom ranch house totally gone, luckily they were not at home.
