Snapshots of a stormy Kansas spring

Here’s the next installment of photos submitted to my blog by readers. Spring in Kansas means thunderstorms – and, often, tornadoes.

A tornado damaged a house and property near Lake Afton early in the month, setting off sirens countywide.

A tornado near Douglass damaged a home and farmstead in Butler County. Several brief touchdowns were reported with that storm system.
