CSW WEATHER: Map of Some Metro Kansas City Rainfall Totals From Overnight- August So Far

Severe thunderstorms produced around 444 severe weather reports in America yesterday into early this Friday morning according to the NWS' Storm Prediction Center (SPC)- and many of those severe weather reports were right here in our Central States.

Winds gusting well into tropical storm-force range brought down trees- limbs and power lines throughout MetroRegion Kansas City into the early morning hours- even causing a few instances of injuries and structural damage.

Two injuries were reported in an NWS report when a gas station canopy blew onto their car in Winston in Daviess county MO (Cameron MO on-line paper "MyNorthwestMO" says no one was hurt) and a Southwest Airlines pilot reportedly suffered "serious" injuries after he was struck by large hail at Omaha's Eppley airfield- according to the OMAHA (NE) WORLD.

In Metro Kansas City- around 100-thousand people were without electrical power in the Kansas City Power & Light areas of service alone- but except for many parts of Sedalia- St. Joseph and Maryville MO- most had been restored this morning.

Now the rainfall maps- courtesy of the Overland Park STORMWATCH site:

Shown first are Metro maps- Northland through central KC-MO and Southland covering central and south KC-MO and Johnson county KS.

Next are the same maps- showing accumulated rainfall so far this August 2011 in those various areas of the Metro.
