Tornadoes near Belpre in central Kansas on Monday

Storm chaser Mike Parker captured striking images of a wall cloud as well a pair of tornadoes in central Kansas Monday night. The first tornado touched down near Belpre in Edwards County, chasers have told me, and the second about 4 miles southwest of Macksville.

I’m hoping to learn more about these tornadoes from the National Weather Service office in Dodge City. Warning Coordination Meteorologist Jeff Hutton was conducting a damage survey Monday afternoon.
