No casualties reported in small tornado outbreaks in US; More storms possible – WSVN 7News | Miami News, Weather, Sports
(AP) – Storms produced about two dozen small tornadoes in parts of the southern plains, according to the National Weather Service, but there were no reports of deaths or injuries and worse severe weather is possible on Friday.
Nearly 15 tornadoes were reported Thursday in northwestern Kansas, southwestern Nebraska and eastern Colorado, according to Weather Service meteorologist Ryan Husted in Goodland, Kansas.
Damage was reported to the roof, windows and football stadium at the high school in the unincorporated community of Weskan in western Kansas, near the Colorado border, near the Colorado border, Husted said, but other damage had little to no damage served.
“Everyone was frail or small…lived shorter and shorter lives, most staying out on our farm lands,” Husted said.
As many as ten tornadoes have been reported in central Oklahoma, according to Weather Service meteorologist Scott Curl.
Homes and businesses were damaged in the Oklahoma cities of Noble, Newcastle and Tuttle, and in Cole, where a tornado killed three people on April 19.
The weather service will dispatch investigators later on Friday to assess the damage and estimate the strength of the tornadoes, Curl and Husted said.
The Weather Service’s Storm Prediction Center says another round of storms is possible starting Friday afternoon, particularly in the central Missouri Valley — a region centered on Omaha, Nebraska. There could be some tornadoes, large hail and wind damage, the center said, with large hail and strong winds also forecast for the southern plains.
