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 Very small brief tornado did minor damage to buildings in southwest portions of Washington. Tornado was only 50 yards wide and had winds of around 80 mph which would have been similar to surrounding 60 to 80 mph winds within the bow echo.
