Update: 2 P.M.

A line of showers and thunderstorms that moved through the state this morning has caused some reports of damage across eastern parts of the state.

70 MPH winds were reported near Emporia, bringing down tree limbs and slowing traffic on the Kansas Turnpike. The same line of storms also blew down road signs along interstate 70 near Manhattan and knocked down power lines near Pittsburg in the southeast part of the state.

The rain and storms have exited the area this afternoon, but the wind associated with a strong low-pressure area will stick around all day. A wind advisory is in effect for most of KAKE-land through late this afternoon. A high wind warning has been issued for the counties just north and east of Wichita until 6 p.m. where wind gusts are expected to exceed 50 MPH. More information is included in the link below.
