At least four tornadoes hit different counties in northeast Kansas Monday night, but there were no fatalities or serious injuries, according to preliminary reports from emergency management officials.
The most significant damage was reported in and around Marysville, which is about 150 miles northwest of Kansas City near the Nebraska border. A tornado touched down about 9:50 p.m., said Bill Schwindamann, Marshall County emergency management director.
During last month’s back-to-back snow storms, the Kansas Department of Transportation reports their snow crews pretreated and plowed nearly 880,000 miles of highway – enough to circle the earth 35 times.
