ST. LOUIS (AP) - More strong storms are rumbling through the Midwest, with the National Weather Service saying a tornado was confirmed in Kansas and other places seeing heavy rains, large hail and strong winds.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that the National Weather Service noted hail nearly 2 inches in diameter near the city. It said rain fell at a rate of nearly an inch per hour, raising concerns of flash flooding.
Ameren said about 8,500 people were without power in Missouri. In Oklahoma, regulators said about 9,000 people had lost power near Tulsa.
The Detroit Free Press said two tornadoes hit earlier Monday in northern Michigan. Jim Keysor, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, said they damaged property but caused no injuries. To the south, flooding closed some roadways.
