A TORNADO warning applies after buildings have collapsed and damage has occurred during a previous storm.
Photos shared on social media show collapsed building walls, crushed police cars and streets lined with debris after a tornado swept through.
A tornado made landfall in Marysville, Kansas early Saturday, prompting officials to urge people to avoid the area.
“We’re asking everyone to stay away from downtown,” Marysville Police Chief Matt Simpson said.
“I know everyone wants to come out and please give our first responders time to check and clean things up.
“You know the city crews and first responders will be working all evening.”
No injuries were reported.
Manhattan, Kansas and other parts of the state remain under tornado warnings.
The severe storms hit Kansas after passing through parts of Nebraska.
There was a confirmed tornado in Wilber, Nebraska earlier on Saturday.
The twister was reported to be moving southeast at 20 miles per hour and producing hail more than two inches in size.
Local residents shared photos of the huge hail on Twitter.
Some photos show hail up to five inches in size.
Beatrice’s Nick Meyer tweeted photos of the hail and said: “The 5 inch gap when it hit the floor but there’s also a 3 inch plus big one on my freezer.”
Another resident told a local ABC affiliate: “That 5-inch hailstone cracked my windshield. It sounded like a bomb as the windshield shattered.”
Parts of the Midwest, including Nebraska and Kansas, were hit with tornadoes and severe thunderstorms and warnings throughout the day.
