DODGE CITY (AP) -- Strong winds, heavy rains and hail roared through western Kansas, knocking out power to thousands and toppling 18-wheelers.
Authorities said Thursday that at least 30,000 customers lost power in Lane County, but a spokeswoman for the sheriff's office said virtually all power had been restored by 7 a.m. One gust was estimated at 90 miles an hour in Dighton.
A wind advisory for a wide area of western Kansas expires in early afternoon, with 50 mile-per-hour gusts possible.
The National Weather Service has canceled a blizzard warning that was to have expired at 7 p.m. Thursday.
A winter weather advisory remains in effect until mid-afternoon in the northwest corner of the state, where snow and blowing snow will likely continue through the morning.
