Episode Narrative A supercell thunderstorm formed over northern Hot Springs County and swept east-northeast across the Badlands through eastern Washakie County. The severe storm eventually moved into the Nowood River Valley south of Ten Sleep. Along its 40-mile track, the thunderstorm produced ping pong to golf ball sized hail and an EF1 tornado.
Event Narrative A tornado swept through Juniper trees on a high ridge before descending the hillside into the Nowood River Valley southeast of Ten Sleep. The tornado destroyed several well-built out buildings and downed at least 20, century-old Cottonwood trees on ranches in the valley.
