Some strong winds from the storms that rolled through overnight caused a couple trains to have some of their cars blown over in Walton. The good news is there were no injuries, and no danger to the public.

Cleanup is underway by BNSF, but it'll take some time. While you can still pass through U.S. 50 near Walton, there will likely be delays today, so we recommend avoiding it if possible. Our deputies are on site throughout the day to help with scene security.

This is an example of teamwork ! I just drove past on my way home. The crews cleaning it up look like a finely tuned machine. I am SO impressed. Great job with coordinating with law enforcement..All are doing a wonderful job.

Will there still be as.many trains running through Newton during clean up?

So glad no one was hurt

Do you anticipate any delays tomorrow morning?

Farmers Market Tomorrow Morning in NEWTON

Quite a shock when the earthquake hit this morning just before 8. We didn't feel it here, but our phones suddenly lit up and we're getting calls for Hutchinson and Reno County because we are one of their overflow rollover locations. But it proves the new system works like it's supposed to. We used to have to ask for a manual reroute, and it took time. Now it's automatic. Glad we could help our neighbors to the west out when the ground shook! ... See moreSee less

Eyes to the sky!We could see some isolated storms this evening between 8-11pm. Our threat is not as great as it is to the north of us but we could see some damaging winds and marginally severe hail. Potential threat will more than likely be pockets of heavy rainfall and localized flooding. ... See moreSee less
