NWS Confirms Tornado Hit in Northern Newton County
Monday night's thunderstorms didn't just bring rain and lightning... they also brought an EF1 tornado. That's according to National Weather Service Meteorologist Steve Lindenberg, who confirms to News Talk KZRG that a tornado briefly touched down near Leawood just after 11:08pm, causing "quite a bit" of wind damage. It seems nobody was hurt. Lindenberg also says there was significant straight-line wind damage in southern Lawrence County.
