WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - The National Weather Service says severe storms have spawned at least two tornadoes in western Kansas.

Meteorologist Ray Burgert says a tornado touched down in Trego County just after 6 p.m. Sunday and another touched down in northern Ellis county around 7:20 p.m.

Burgert says the weather service didn’t receive any immediate reports of damage or injuries.

Dispatchers with the Trego and Ellis county sheriff’s offices also had no reports of damage or injuries. Crews were surveying the area.

Much of the state, including Dodge City, Salina and Wichita, is under a tornado watch until 10 p.m.
