Tornado warning issued in southeast Kansas

The first tornado warning of what figures to be a busy day in the region has been issued.

The National Weather Service has issued a tornado warning for Allen County in southeast Kansas until 2:15 p.m. A thunderstorm capable of producing a tornado was located 8 miles west of Mildred, or 9 miles northeast of Iola, and moving southeast.

That’s an uncommon track for a tornadic thunderstorm, but I’ve seen several tornadoes defy the norm this year.
