DREXEL, Mo. (AP) - Midwestern storms raised flooding concerns in already soggy areas and spawned at least one tornado.
No injuries were reported from the two storm systems that hit the central part of the U.S. on Monday and early Tuesday.
Heavy rain brought new flooding concerns to areas of central North Dakota hit by flooding earlier this spring. Western South
Dakota saw heavy rain, strong wind and golf ball-size hail, with
two reports of funnel clouds.
A separate storm system that cut a wide swath across Kansas, Nebraska and Missouri knocked out power, downed trees and damaged buildings. The National Weather Service confirmed that at least one brief tornado touched down in western Nebraska, several miles southwest of Sutherland.
