Weather officials had been warning of a tornado outbreak on the Great Plains for days.
Boy, did it deliver.
The Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Okla., logged 120 tornado reports as of 2 a.m. Sunday – and 97 of them were in Kansas. Remarkably, no deaths have been reported in Kansas, even though one large tornado ripped through south Wichita, Oaklawn, and other parts of the metropolitan area.
At least two people have been killed by a tornado that struck Woodward, Okla., however.
Storms are continuing to rumble through the area through the early morning hours of Sunday, and a tornado watch remains in effect until 6 a.m. for nearly one-third of Kansas – including the Wichita metropolitan area.
