DODGE CITY, Kan. (AP) -- Violent weather has been pounding southwestern and south-central Kansas with hail, funnel clouds and a couple of tornado sightings, but there have been no immediate reports of damage or injury.

The National Weather Service in Dodge City began issuing tornado warnings shortly after 5 p.m. Monday, mostly based on Doppler radar showing strong rotation. At least eight counties were under tornado warnings of varying lengths over the next few hours.

The emergency manager in Comanche County reported a tornado near Coldwater Lake around 7 p.m. Earlier, Kiowa County law enforcement reported a brief, rain-wrapped four miles southwest of Greensburg. The twister lifted quickly but spawned a funnel cloud a short distance away.

Funnel clouds were spotted by storm chasers and law enforcement in Barber and Clark counties.
