...ON THIS DATE IN WEATHER HISTORY...

In 1996, a well photographed and videographed tornado picked up a
large amount of dirt from a field where a farmer had been plowing
5 miles north of Colby Kansas. The tornado first moved east for
about a half mile and then turned to the south southwest for 2 and
a half miles. The tornado dissipated just after crossing Highway
25. The tornado damaged a corn field, an irrigation sprinkler
system, and a three wheel all terrain vehicle. The tornado could
be seen from 20 to 30 miles away.
