Four tornados touched down in Kansas City on Tuesday, June 7th, cutting down trees, and power lines and badly damaging residential and commercial buildings. Early news reports indicate winds topped 100 mph, and RestoreMasters has commercial roof inspection experts in Kansas City to fast-track wind damage insurance claims and implement emergency roof repair measures.

Early reports pointed to an EF1 tornado that plowed through Johnson County, Kansas, into Jackson County, Missouri, overnight. NBC affiliate KSHB 41 indicated that a second and more ferocious twister wreaked havoc as it drove winds of 115 mph and cut more than a 9-mile path, 200 yards wide through Johnson County and into Jackson County, causing widespread roof wind damage, downing trees, and leaving thousands without power.

“Evergy reports almost 30,000 customers without power. Independence Power and Light reports more than 1,850 customers without power. The Board of Public Utilities in Wyandotte County has 51 customers without power,” according to KSHB 41.

Reports indicate Buckner sustained heavy property damage, and all impacted property owners are urged to request a complimentary commercial roof inspection and promptly file a wind damage insurance claim so that a roof repair contractor can secure your building.

A local map of the tornado in Kansas City shows a massive light gray storm front blanketing the region. The extreme winds are shown stretching as far west in Kansas as Reno and Tonganoxie in Leavenworth County. The tornado damage map also extends as far east as Buckner, Orrick, and well beyond Lee’s Summit to the south.

Storm images and videos are on social media:

The National Weather Service hail, high wind, and tornado damage map shows a densely concentrated storm cluster across Kansas, Nebraska, and Missouri, with fronts dipping into North Texas and isolated severe weather trailing through Alabama and Tennessee.

National reporting accounted for 221 high wind incidents, 220 hailstorms, and 17 tornados, inflicting substantial property damage that required immediate commercial roof inspection services and repairs. Wide-reaching reports illustrate the following areas suffered property and roof wind damage in the Greater Kansas City area.

  • Buckner: Johnson County, MO, was reportedly hit by the more devastating tornado of the four in the storm cell. The EF2 sent debris flying at 115 mph as it cut a trench 9 miles long and two football fields wide.
  • Leewood:  Drone footage shows a tree that fell on a house near 95th Street and Belinder Road.
  • Lenexa: An EF1 tornado cut a 14-mile path more than a football field wide across Johnson County, KS. Branches covered the Santa Fe Trail and a large tree was downed on Kessler.  
  • Mound City:  Trees were toppled in areas of Holt County, MO.
  • Rockport: High winds ripped down tree limbs on Highway 111 in Atchison County, MO.
  • Valley Falls: A tree two feet in diameter was snapped in half by tornado winds in Jefferson County, MO.
  • Wagstaff: Miami County, KS, saw winds peak at 80 mph as a twister ripped a 75-yard swath.
  • Winchester: Limbs were routinely severed from trees, some as large as eight inches around.

After a tornado impacts a community, it’s crucial to have a comprehensive, no-cost commercial roof inspection completed. When a twister ravages an area, the vacuum-like force can cause roof wind damage to structures that did not sustain a direct hit. RestoreMasters recently dispatched emergency roof repair crews to Southern Indiana to support property owners making wind and hail damage insurance claims after storms hit on May 19, 2022.

Strong winds can rip open some roofing systems and cause severe roof wind damage.

Some older roofs can sustain damage from only 50 mph winds.

The intensity of roof damage is determined by various factors: the velocity and impact of flying debris, the quality of the original installation, the building height and location in relation to other buildings, the angle and shape of the roof, and the material used on the roof.

It's important to get a thorough roof inspection & property damage assessment following severe weather like this so that you can determine whether you have roof damage from hail or high winds.

If roof leaks are a problem, they need to be addressed immediately. Experienced roofing contractors can either cover the affected area (or the entire roof) with a tarp or with a durable shrink wrap plastic membrane until long-term repairs can be made. Preventing water intrusion will help stop mold from growing.

Rather than believing your roof is not damaged, if your property is anywhere in the area of the storm damage map, then you will want to get your roof inspected.

Symptoms of storm damage problems do not always show up immediately.

And insurance companies sometimes enforce deadlines for claims, so you need to get your claim filed quickly.

Emergency response crews are available to provide property owners with assistance in turnkey restoration services, as well as assistance with frozen pipe damage, window damage, siding damage, and roof damage.

The types of clients that consistently rely on RestoreMasters to assist them with hail or wind damage to tile roofing includes: all commercial buildings, hospitals, schools, churches, condos, apartments, hotels, resorts, restaurants, dealerships, retail properties, historical homes & buildings, warehouses and industrial properties.
