Tornado warning issued for northern Kansas
Fox News.com ^ | April 14, 2012 | AP

The National Weather Service issued a tornado warning for sections of north central Kansas Saturday afternoon after earlier reports of ripe conditions for storms across the heart of the country.

The counties included in the warning are western Jewell County, Mitchell Couonty, Osborne County and Smith County, all in north central Kansas, according to the National Weather Service. The warning will last until 12:45 CDT.

Earlier, for only the second time in U.S. history, the Storm Prediction Center issued a high-risk warning more than 24 hours in advance, said Russ Schneider, director of the center, which is part of the National Weather Service. The first time was in April 2006, when nearly 100 tornadoes tore across the southeastern U.S., killing a dozen people and damaging more than 1,000 homes.

Storms were already kicking off in Oklahoma, where a twister whizzed by the nation's tornado forecasting headquarters but caused little damage.

Ol’ “Kathleen Supercilious” is in town, and as usual, she’s stirring-up trouble.

Iowa getting hammered. I went to college out there in 60s, and we had ~6+ tornadoes in 4yrs. Scary stuff.

It’s all that global warming!

Wait, I just remembered what I learned growing up in KS, that tornadoes happen when cold and warm air mix.

So, is it all that global cooling?

Oh Shucks, I done got myself all confused.
