Kansas hit by more than month's worth of tornadoes

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - The National Weather Service says Kansas likely had more than a month's worth of tornadoes in this weekend's outbreak.

Mike Hudson, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Kansas City, said Sunday that crews are assessing the hardest hit areas from the storms that hit Saturday and Sunday. They're trying to determine how many tornadoes were involved.

Kansas reported widespread damage in Sedgwick and Rice counties, but no fatalities.

Hudson says there were 122 preliminary tornado reports in the region, with most occurring in Kansas, but some of those are likely multiple reports of the same tornado. He says statistics show Kansas averages 12 tornadoes in April.

Hudson says based on the early reports that it's likely there will have been more than 12 tornadoes in Kansas in this outbreak.
