More Severe Weather Pelts NE Kansas

TOPEKA, Kan. _ The National Weather Service in Topeka says it has received numerous reports of baseball- to softball-sized hail in north-central and northeast Kansas.

Meteorologist Darrel Smith says officials in Manhattan have reported a lot of cars with their windows busted out by baseball-sized hail. And additional reports of baseball-sized hail have come from southeast of Manhattan near Alma.

Several more rural areas also have been hit by the storms, which are moving east toward Missouri.

Forecasters say the severe thunderstorms in northern Kansas moved through the same general area of the state damaged by a tornado and powerful winds last week.

A severe thunderstorm watch was posted in 30 northern and northeastern Kansas counties.

Such weather has been common so far this year. Last week the weather service reported that nearly 90 twisters were reported in Kansas over a period of several days.
