Wednesday’s funnel clouds over south-central Kansas pose no danger to public

The funnel clouds that have been dropping from the skies in south-central Kansas on Wednesday afternoon pose no danger to the public, forecasters say.

“We’ve had dozens of reports so far — from Kingman into western Sedgwick County,” said National Weather Service meteorologist Robb Lawson.

He said the funnels were developing from an upper-level low pressure system and were reaching about halfway to the ground before pulling back up into the clouds.
