I-70 has reopened after strong storms Tuesday night in western Kansas.


More than 7,000 people were without power in parts of Ellis, Rooks and Rush counties and Interstate 70 was closed between Hays and WaKeeney after strong storms rolled through western Kansas Tuesday evening.

Storm Team 12 reports 80 mph winds blew through the area, blowing over at least 20 semis and knocking down several high-voltage power lines over those semis along I-70.
