Thousands of people in Sedgwick County may have awakened to no electricity Wednesday.
It's the result of a storm which also tore through Hutchinson Tuesday night with baseball-sized hail and 65 miles-per-hour winds.
Here are some examples of what the storm did:
At Conklin Cars in Hutchinson, part of the roof was torn off and left lying in the parking lot.
Widespread damage is reported in South Haven, near the Oklahoma line. Power poles were knocked down in nearby Caldwell.
Near Norwich, the roof was blown off a 25-foot by 40-foot building.
A storm siren was blown over at Santa Fe Lake in Butler County. No tornadoes developed, which might have required the sirens to sound. But spotters in Kingman County estimated top winds approached 100 miles per hour.
At one time early Tuesday, Westar Energy counted more than 5,700 customers across Sedgwick County without power, especially on the north side of Valley Center.
