Storms have been moving through the state tonight. We have seen strong wind, heavy downpours and lightning. In Audubon County there was a report of 1/2 inch diameter hail.

This looked much more like a spring storm outbreak than weather we normally see in February.

The storms were moving at 55 mph to the northeast as I tracked them during the 10PM news.

The lightning strikes were topping 600 an hour between 10 and 11 PM.

There are reports of major damage near Topeka, KS from a tornado touching down tonight. The little town of Harveyville had search and rescue teams combing the debris. There were reports of “walking wounded” trying to find family and first aid.

Much more on that on the NBC news today.
