Tuesday's tornadoes around Kansas

Three tornadoes were reported in Kansas from Tuesday night’s storms, according to the Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Okla.

One of them touched down briefly only a few miles northwest of Greensburg, which was decimated by an EF5 tornado two years ago. No damage was reported with Tuesday night’s tornado.

Earlier in the evening, two tornadoes were reported in southeast Kansas - one about 5 miles south of Fort Scott, and the other 8 miles southeast of Humboldt. No damage has been reported from those tornadoes.

There were more than 30 reports of hail around Kansas from the thunderstorms that formed, SPC records show.
