WICHITA, Kan. -- Strong to severe storms moved through portions of KAKEland Sunday.

Storms began developing Sunday afternoon in western and northwest Kansas, moving east through the evening. Tornado warnings were issued in Jewell and Cloud counties, but there were no reports of significant damage.

Lightning could be to blame for a house fire in Park City. Crews were called to the 6900 block of North Grove around 10:30 p.m. Early reports indicated the attic of a home has substantial damage. Everyone living there escaped safely.

A Comanche County official reports a storm tore down several power poles east of Coldwater. At least 24 poles were blown to the ground along U.S. 160.

Hail was powerful enough in Stanton County to damage windows. And in Ford County, a metal shed reportedly was blown 200 feet by the storm.

Some minor wind damage has been reported in Hays and in Dodge City, with a few power lines and tree limbs knocked down. The storm system moved into south-central Kansas around 8 p.m. bringing strong winds and heavy rains.

Minor street flooding has been reported in the Wichita area, but the storms over the area are not severe.

Depending on how this evolves, storms will be possible once again for central and southeast Kansas Monday afternoon.
