... On this date in weather history...

In 1990, four tornadoes struck central Kansas, of which 2
were strong f3s. One F3 tornado, with a track 26 miles
long and three fourths of a mile wide, barreled through
Barton, Rice and Ellsworth counties. Six were injured.
Eighty Eight cars of a 125-car freight train were
derailed. In some cases the freight cars were stacked 3
to 4 cars high. It caused around $500,000 damage. The
second F3 tornado, believed to have touched down multiple
times, raced 60 miles across Rice, McPherson and Marion
counties and was one quarter mile wide. This tornado
also got on the 'wrong track' as it too, hit a freight
train, derailing 87 of 103 cars. Nearly $3 million
damage resulted in McPherson and Marion counties alone.
In 1962, severe thunderstorms hit Reno and Harvey
counties with a barrage of hail that reached 4 inches in
diameter. The giant hail caused around $1 million damage
just southwest of Hutchinson alone. Both counties were
also hit by an F3 tornado. The Reno County twister
injured 6 between Nickerson and Hutchinson. The Harvey
County tornado moved very erratically along a 10-mile
track.The width is unknown, but the twister destroyed 2
gas stations and several trailers, then lifted at the
southwest edge of Newton.
