Storm Causes Damage in South Central Kansas



WICHITA - Severe weather in south-central Kansas prompted 2 severe thunderstorm warnings in Sedgwick County late Wednesday into early Thursday.  A storm moving through northern Sedgwick County triggered a warning after 11:30 p.m. Wednesday night.  Radar indicated the potential for up to 65 mph wind gusts.  The storm dropped heavy rain in Wichita as it moved east, but was allowed to expire at 12:15 a.m. as scheduled.  However the warning was re-issued a little over 10 minutes later as a 71 mph wind gust was measured at McConnell AFB.  Sedgwick County Emergency Management reported a tree fell on a house near Pawnee and Hillside during the storm. A 70 mile-per-hour wind gust was reported in the College Hill neighborhood in east Wichita, near Douglas & Oliver. Wind gusts of 60 miles-per-hour were measured near Rose Hill, Winfield, and Wellington. Nickel- to quarter-sized hail fell for about five minutes in portions of west Wichita. More than one inch of rain fell in some places in Wichita.
