Two tornadoes in Kansas on Tuesday

The Storm Prediction Center received 7 preliminary reports of tornadoes from storms around the country on Tuesday: 2 in Kansas, 3 in Illinois and one each in Louisiana and Ohio.

The Kansas tornadoes were a pair of landspouts that touched down briefly in Ford County - one about 7 miles southwest of Dodge City and the other 5 miles west-southwest of Windthorst, an unincorporated village south of U.S. 50 known mostly for its historic, now-closed Catholic church.

No damage was reported from the Kansas tornadoes.
