Eudora News and

Severe storms that dropped tornadoes in Wichita and Emporia on Sunday afternoon rolled through the Eudora area Sunday evening around 7:00 PM but had very little impact as they came through.  Many residents reported via our Facebook and Twitter feed that there was no damage or strong winds associated with the line of thunderstorms.  Most residents reported heavy rains that lasted between 30 and 45 minutes.

According to reports from various Kansas City media outlets, winds picked up again with the storm as it moved into the metropolitan area and caused some damage to trees and power lines in area.  There was also a few isolated reports in the metro area of straight line wind damage.

Forecasters are saying that the risk of possibly severe storms could affect our area again today.  While the biggest chances of severe storms is again in Oklahoma, Southeast Kansas and over a large swath in Missouri, the Eudora area could potentially see heavy rains and possible hail this afternoon into this evening.
