DEARING, Kan. (AP) — A second round of potentially violent weather has emergency managers in southeastern and east-central Kansas preparing for any necessary response.

The National Weather Service placed about 20 counties under a tornado watch until 10 p.m. Monday.

A smattering of tornado warnings were posted by late afternoon for far southeastern counties as forecasters noted strong rotation in thunderstorms.

In rural Montgomery County near the Oklahoma line, law enforcement reported a brief touchdown shortly after 4 p.m. along U.S. 166, about three miles from the small town Dearing.

Residents in parts of south-central Kansas continued cleaning up Monday from a powerful storm system that struck the day before, producing at least one confirmed tornado south of Wichita.
