Authorities say two people are dead in northern Kansas after tornadoes cut a diagonal path across the state last night.

A spokeswoman for the Kansas Adjutant General's Department says one victim was found in a yard in the town of Chapman. The other was found outside a mobile home in the Jackson County town of Soldier.

The most extensive damage from the tornado outbreak appears to be in Chapman. A half-mile-wide tornado tore through the town, destroying more than 60 homes and numerous businesses. All three schools have been damaged.

A tornado also hit the campus of Kansas State University in Manhattan, damaging buildings and tossing cars. No reported injuries.
