There was briefly a tornado steaming just west of Emporia Sunday.

A funnel cloud was spotted and confirmed heading north. Video shows the rotation that many storm chasers confirmed touched down and then raced up the Kansas Turnpike briefly.

The State Department of Emergency Management says the twister caused structural damage to homes nearby but the extent isn’t known yet.
