Wind is undeniable force in Kansas City on Monday

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — It has been a memorable Monday in the Kansas City area, as strong winds downed some trees and limbs, kicked up debris, forced drivers to really grip their steering wheels and made wearing a skirt or a hat a challenge.

In Leavenworth, Kan., on 10th Street, across from Leavenworth High School a tree toppled over in the residents’ front yard. The picture was sent to FOX 4 by ‎Linda Stansell‎. Below it, there’s some video of a stop sign in Gladstone, with credit to viewer Josh Lewellen. Scroll down further and there’s video from Higginsville, Mo., from viewer Bonnie Fisher.

FOX 4 will be live streaming on Facebook ( ) as FOX 4 meteorologists Mike Thompson and Joe Lauria track the potential for storms and severe weather. Check back with them on fox4kc .com and on FOX 4 newscasts (5, 6, 9 & 10 p.m.)

Also to note: March 5th-11th is Severe Weather Awareness Week.
