While this caused some chaos with the rush hour traffic (please remember, don't hide under a highway bridge during a severe thunderstorm, your car is not worth another's life), the bigger storm loomed to the east.
There was about an hour breather until the bigger storm came in. Hutchinson had 70 mph winds, 2" hail, and several power poles snapped. These storms were moving to the southeast driven by a cold front and powered by a dryline. This main storm caused warnings to last for about 2 hours and caused estimated 60mph winds and hail downtown.
