KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Kansas City erupted in a half-hour flurry of fireworks after the Royals won the World Series, and the National Weather Service has radar images to prove it.

Meteorologist Jared Leighton says the weather service radar in Pleasant Hill, about 45 minutes southeast of Kansas City, shows the most intense fireworks activity was downtown, near the Power & Light District, starting just after 11:30 p.m.

He says smoke from the fireworks showed up better on the radar Sunday night than it would have during the Fourth of July because the air is cooler and the radar beam stays closer to the ground.

Kansas City Police Chief Daryl Forte tweeted a photo of fireworks around midnight and said they were a big part of celebrations happening all over the city.
