TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - The National Weather Service says severe storms and some flooding is possible across Kansas Thursday..

The weather service issued a hazardous weather outlook Thursday for east central, north central and northeast Kansas, with heavy rains, hail and damaging winds expected.

Flood warnings also are in affect for counties in western Kansas after 5 to 6 inches of rain fell Wednesday and overnight in Lane, Finney, Hodgeman, Haskell and Meade counties. Many counties in south-central and central Kansas are under flood watches.

A storm system that hit western Kansas Wednesday night produced several mostly short-lived tornadoes in Logan, Lane, Haskell, Finney and Hodgeman counties, causing damage to trees, power poles and outbuildings but no injuries. The storms also produced hail of an inch or larger in the region.
