Salina storm that turned tornadic and killed 2 people







These pictures are not mine, but I have a friend (Nichole Conard) that has the ability to get into the thick of it and call me for radar information. She has a website and I'll give a plug :








She called around 9:30 running like hell down I-35 from I-70. This is the point that baseball size hail hit the airport.






They made it out okay and sent pictures.








Unfortunately, this is the storm that went on into Chapman, Soldier, Manhattan, and had a body count associated with it.

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN WICHITA HAS ISSUED A* SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WARNING FOR...SALINE COUNTY IN CENTRAL KANSAS.* UNTIL 1015 PM CDT.* AT 914 PM CDT...NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE METEOROLOGISTS WERE TRACKING SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS CAPABLE OF PRODUCING DESTRUCTIVE HAIL UP TO BASEBALL SIZE...AND DAMAGING WINDS UP TO 60 MPH. THESE STORMS WERE LOCATED ALONG A LINE EXTENDING FROM GLENDALE TO 14MILES SOUTHWEST OF BROOKVILLE...AND MOVING EAST AT 54 MPH.
