Episode Narrative After 9pm CDT a squall line developed across north central Kansas and evolved into a bow echo. Widespread 60 to 80 mph winds with pockets of 80-100 mph winds occurred across a large part of Ottawa, Cloud, Clay, Geary, Washington and Riley counties between 10pm and 12 am Saturday night. At least 2 small tornadoes were confirmed that evening however most of the damage was due to straight line winds that in some cases were measured in excess of 100 mph.
Event Narrative Small tornado skipped northeast and produced EF1 damage at a home along Parallel road on the Clay and Washington county border. Outbuildings were destroyed and grain bins were blown away. Ponderosa pines were sheared off near the stump in a narrow path to the northeast.
