CSW BREAKING: Tornado Touches Down Northeast of Emporia KS

The EMPORIA (KS) GAZETTE reports that at 8:53 p.m.- spotters reported a tornado touched down "near the water tower on Burlington Road in eastern Lyon County."


Although a "debris field" was reported- there hasn't been any reports yet of any structures hit or injuries.


This storm cell appears to be moving more eastward than northward now- and could affect Johnson County KS and the southwest K.C. Metro during the next hour or two..


Bear in mind- ONLY a Severe Thunderstorm Watch is in effect for Metro K.C. until 11 pm..
