Storms hit the Wichita Greyhound Park hard Wednesday night, blowing off part of the roof and damaging several cars. There were no injuries, but some say safety measures were not taken in time.

One Greyhound Park employee tells KAKE News the park did not do enough to keep its patrons safe. The employee, who wishes to remain anonymous, says the park never made a public announcement about the storm.

Park officials say they did everything they could to warn people of the coming storm by moving patrons to a reinforced safe room on the second floor. They say people had plenty of time to take shelter and their emergency procedures worked just fine.

Cleanup will take a couple of weeks. Park officials say it will likely be a couple of months before live racing resumes.
