KANSAS CITY, Mo. — People are being asked to evacuate the NFL Draft area due to severe weather in the area.

Strong wind gusts over 40 miles per hour made the site a safety hazard. Thundercat was supposed to perform.

Fans were also alerted through the NFL OnePass app and throughout the draft experience.
