GREAT BEND, Kansas — A line of thunderstorms that moved through late Tuesday into early Wednesday morning caused some damage near Great Bend.

Several power poles were blown down overnight.

Homes also suffered damage along with cars and outbuildings.

Officials say the damage is the result of straight-line wind, but some residents aren’t so sure they weren’t hit by a small tornado.

“We have some cars over here that have windows out, blew windows out, it took a dog pen down so yeah, I don’t believe it was straight winds. We had too much damage,” said Joy Torrez, All-Season Mobile Home Park.

Crews worked through the morning to get power restored.
