Storm threat shifts after day of hail, heavy rain in Kansas

"We've never been hit by a tornado here in town, amazingly", Eischen said. Storm reports indicate half inch hail in Morgan County, three quarters inch hail in Vigo County, one inch hail in Johnson County, one and a half inch hail in Decatur County and nearly two inch hail in Shelby County.

Storm coverage diminishes by Thursday morning and redevelopment Thursday afternoon may only be isolated. Officials continue to monitor the system as it remains in the area. Smaller-sized hail was reported in Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Ohio and Texas on Tuesday. A storm that cleared Oklahoma City around sunset may have dropped a tornado or two during a 90-mile march to Tulsa. There will be the potential for severe storms across the risk as well. Emergency crews evacuated Parkview Haven Nursing Home. The strong storms were most likely to strike portions of northwest Alabama, the weather service said. Flooding forced closure of U.S. Highway 136, but it's been reopened.

Klockow said she would like to know how people handled information they received before and during the storms' development - using actual data and not just anecdotes from people tweeting about what was perceived as a flawed forecast. Several barns were damaged, but no one was injured.

Her name was not yet released.

It appears a brief, weak tornado may have occurred in Greene County around 7:21pm Tuesday evening.

The storm was set to remain in parts of the plains while expanding into the Mississippi Valley and parts of the South into Wednesday, according to forecasters.

Despite heavy rains, lightning, hail and gusty winds that moved through the region yesterday afternoon, Parkland residents got by relatively unscathed, but another chance for severe thunderstorms, hail and tornadoes returns today.

Figure 4. As of mid-morning Wednesday, SPC's convective outlooks show a slight risk of severe weather on each of Days 1, 2, and 3 (Wednesday through Friday, April 27-29, 2016). It does not include Des Moines but does include Warren County. Since areas from Dallas to Oklahoma City are going to be much closer to the center of low pressure, that is where storms are going to be the worst. Half-inch size hail also was reported in Franklin County in eastern Missouri. "It was always entirely possible there would be tornadoes and it was possible there won't be". Indianapolis forecasters say they are investigating that report. A watch can cover parts of a state or several states. The storms produced large hail.

A tornado caused injuries in northern Texas amid a series of storms that brought hail and high winds to the nation's midsection. Five people were hospitalized after their vehicles were caught up in an apparent tornado, Howe Police Chief Carl Hudman said.

No deaths have been reported.

Storms on Tuesday brought grapefruit-sized hail in Kansas and winds near 75 miles per hour throughout the Great Plains and Missouri River Valley.
