Violent Midwest Storms

At least three people are injured after a line of thunderstorms blew through the Midwest.

Authorities say tornadoes and golfball-sized hail were part of the storms that destroyed homes, knocked down power lines and tipped
over trailers in Kansas, Missouri, Iowa and Nebraska.

It appears Kansas got hit hardest.

Governor Kathleen Sebelius has declared a state of emergency in one southeastern county.

Lightning or downed power lines may have sparked prairie fires that forced evacuation of several homes near the central Kansas town of Hutchinson.

Wind flipped a semitrailer in northeastern Kansas, and authorities say two trucks were blown off I-80 in Nebraska.
