Severe Winds Buffet Central Kansas

     PRATT, Kan. - Another round of strong storms took down power lines and trees in central Kansas as residents keep a worried watch on swollen waterways.
     Winds ranging up to 100 miles per hour were reported Monday night in Pratt and Butler counties. Emergency officials say the winds caused extensive damage at the Shady Creek marina at El Dorado Lake. Power outages were reported in Butler, Pratt, Harvey, and Greenwood counties.
     And more flooding is a concern in Reno County, which has had lowland flooding since Sunday. Reno County Emergency Management Director Bill Guy says Cow Creek is rising in Rice County and that water will soon be flowing into Reno County, where some rural resident have left their homes.
     Twenty-one counties in south-central, central, and southeast Kansas are under a flood warning.
