HUTCHINSON, Kansas - The storms have moved out of the area, but the damage remains. Winds up to 80 mph damaged roofs, broke windows and downed trees in parts of south central Kansas.
In Hutchinson, large hail broke out windows across town.
"I've never seen anything like it," said Lindsey Thissen, Hutchinson Regional Medical Center spokesperson. "You would expect something like this maybe if there was a tornado where debris was thrown."
Thissen says she's amazed by the damage left by baseball- and softball-size hail.
The hail shattered skylights at a Walmart, broke windows and damaged cars at Hutchinson Regional Medical Center and tore down trees across the city.
Patients and guests at the hospital were moved away from the windows.
"We were in the hospital, windows started breaking, they started moving all the patients to the insides and it was pretty scary," said Kimberly Craft who was in Hutchinson for the birth of her grandson.
Craft's pickup has so much damage, an insurance agent said it will be a total loss.
She says every vehicle in the hospital parking lot looked like hers or worse.
