ST. LOUIS (AP) — More strong storms have been rumbling through the Midwest.

The National Weather Service says a tornado touched down near Cedar Vale, Kansas, last night, with hail the size of ping pong balls. Other places saw heavy rains, large hail and strong winds.

Forecasters also say about 8,500 people lost power in Missouri, and about 9,000 in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

The Detroit Free Press is reporting that two tornadoes hit northern Michigan earlier Monday. The National Weather Service says there was property damage, but no injuries.

A storm spotter was hospitalized in Iowa after he was struck by lightning while watching a system a night earlier that left swollen rivers, power outages, trees down and campers overturned.
