KANSAS CITY METRO — A front of strong storms raked over the metro this morning, May 27, led by an ominous-looking shelf cloud.

Viewer-submitted photo and video, and a timelapse by FOX4 photojournalist Jon Haiduk, show the approaching system and the moment it hit. Contributions came from all over, from Gardner and Overland Park in Kansas to Lee’s Summit in Missouri.
