Cleanup Begins After Large Tornado Slams Northern Kansas

Emergency crews are still assessing damage in Dickinson County this (THUR) morning after a large tornado damaged or destroyed about 20 homes in a rural area of northern Kansas and came within a mile of hitting a small town. Cleanup efforts are expected to begin later today (THUR). The National Weather Service described the tornado as “catastrophic”. It left a trail of destruction across north-central Kansas last (WED) night, but as Heartland Health Monitor’s Bryan Thompson reports, there were apparently no serious injuries or deaths.
