Weather Blog - Last night almost severe, then it wasn't

Last night was another fascinating weather night. Look at this spinning disturbance that was moving into Lawrence with 60 mph winds. It was heading right towards the south half of the KC metro area, and it made it there. It had lost its wind by the time it went into Lawrence, but it did not lose the lightning strikes and heavy rain. It slowed down and produced 1 to 2 inches of rain in many spots south of I-70.

Six Kansas teens charged with murder after botched drug deal: report

Six teens are each facing a first-degree murder charge after a botched drug deal in Kansas, a report said Wednesday. Four 14-year-olds and a pair of 13-year-olds were arrested Tuesday in connection with the shooting death of 19-year-old Marco Cardino on May 14, the Johnson County District Attorney’s Office said. The six teens were not identified due to their ages. Prosecutors have filed a motion to try the group of 14-year-olds as adults, the district attorney’s office told The Post Wednesday. Authorities believe the shooting stemmed from a drug deal gone sideways, according to KMBC-TV. Olathe police officers were called to Black Bob Park around 4 a.m. after gunshots were heard, the department said Monday. Cardino, of Missouri, was pronounced dead at the scene with multiple gunshot wounds, according to Olathe police.
