Tornado touches down in Arkansas City

Ponca City Now - May 15, 2018 2:13 pm

ARKANSAS CITY, Kansas — A tornado touched ground near Highway 166 at approximately 6:30 p.m. Monday.

Rain and hail traveled through parts of the area. Hail damage was reported 7 miles east and northeast of the town.

Power poles along the highway were down 2 miles northwest of the area, which left 300 to 400 residents without power. Crews worked to get the power back shortly after power poles were struck.

This photo of the twister was taken by Jordan Vande Giessen.
