KANSAS (KSNW) — The National Weather Service says more than a dozen small tornadoes were reported Thursday evening in northwest Kansas, southwest Nebraska and eastern Colorado. Still, there are no reports of deaths or injuries.
The storm damaged Weskan High School. Outdoor bleachers were overturned, a sign was blown over, and multiple trees fell.
“Spoke with a local gentleman. The school is over 100 years old. The roof was replaced less than two years ago from another storm that occurred … The bleachers that are damaged are less than two weeks old, and it was all community-raised funding to get the bleachers, so that’s a little upsetting,” said KSN Stormtracker John Moon.
A house southeast of Weskan also had part of its porch flipped onto the roof, breaking four windows.
NWS investigators are in Wallace County, assessing the damage to determine the strength of the tornadoes.
