Rain heavy at times will move across northeast Kansas this afternoon and tonight that could lead to flooding. Severe storms are also possible through this evening with 60 mph wind gusts and hail up to the size of quarters.
While we deal with this bout of winter weather some rural electric coops are still fighting over a storm that hit a year ago Wednesday. Two inches of ice blanketed northeast Kansas bringing down hundreds of miles of power lines.
A committee representing 22 rural electric cooperatives and five municipal systems is meeting with FEMA representatives Tuesday and Wednesday.
FEMA estimates the damage to the power systems at $39 million. The power companies believe it will take $340 million to cover repair costs.
