Forecasters are calling for an afternoon and evening of dangerous severe weather in south-central Kansas.
The predictions and warnings prompted some local schools and businesses to begin preparations early on.
Wichita State University shut down shortly after noon Tuesday due to the elevated threat of heavy winds, tornadoes, and giant hail. The campus shuttle system was cancelled for the remainder of the day, and a baseball game was postponed. WSU expects to resume its normal schedule Wednesday.
