Four tornadoes have been confirmed in Kimball County early this afternoon as a severe storm system moved over southern areas of the county.

The tornadoes confirmed to this point were four miles west, seven miles south, and seven miles southeast of Bushnell and near the Kimball Airport.

The slow moving systems have caused a flash flood warning to be issued for southern Kimball County until 8 p.m. due to the extreme possibility of heavy rain from these storms that could cause local creeks and streams to overflow.

One and a half inch hail was confirmed four miles east of Bushnell.

The storms to this point have been south of the Hoot Owl Ranch, the site of the 2014 Cattlemens Ball.
