Episode Narrative Severe thunderstorms developed over NW Kansas and SW Nebraska during the early evening hours. One long-lived supercell moved slowly east across Sheridan and Graham counties in Kansas, producing baseball-sized hail and winds of 70-80 mph. Several grain bins were damaged or destroyed, hundreds of homes suffered broken windows on the north side of the dwellings, and minor power outages occurred. A grain bin was destroyed in the Danbury- Marion area in southern Red Willow county, Nebraska. Some minor roof damage and downed tree limbs also occurred.
Event Narrative Several irrigation systems were toppled, tree branches were snapped and shingles removed from homes across northern Dundy county.
