Straight line winds cause damage Saturday, more storms expected Monday

Posted: Updated:

Straight line winds and heavy rains created issues across the Kansas City area Saturday, and more storms are expected Monday.

KCTV5 Meteorologist Tom Wachs said there is a chance for isolated storms Monday morning, but the rain should be out of the area by lunchtime.

Monday will start stormy with skies becoming partly sunny by afternoon. Temperatures will be in the mid 80s with light northeasterly winds.

Tuesday and Wednesday will bring cooler and drier conditions with temperatures in the low 80s and mostly sunny skies, KCTV5 Meteorologist Hallie Shulman said.

Strong storms brought damage and flash flooding. At Blue Valley Southwest High School, the roof over the pool was peeled back, leaving huge chunks of material scattered over the school grounds.

"We lost about 80 percent of the roof over the pool," said Scott Crain, director of design and construction for the district.

The damage inside was limited because the roof was sheared back above the pool area. The repairs will be completed by the time classes resume in mid-August.

In Mission on Martway near Lamar, a sinkhole opened up in the Hobby Lobby parking lot. A semi had parked in the lot and was partially swallowed up. A tow truck removed the rig.

No injuries were reported Saturday.
