Hesper area hit
A out-of-season severe weather outbreak Friday spawned funnels that caused damage in both De Soto and Eudora.
Before heading to his basement Friday afternoon, Douglas County resident Mark Gabriel saw black clouds churning straight toward him. When he emerged, Gabriel discovered that the storm had missed his home. Instead, it made a sharp turn northeast and hit his rental property about a quarter of a mile away.
