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

In 1935, while the Republican River flood continued across southwest
Nebraska, a violent F4 tornado formed near Culbertson Nebraska and
moved north northeast before lifting south of Curtis. Twenty two
homes were destroyed as 40 farms were hit across Red Willow and
Frontier Counties. In Red Willow County, three people died in one
farm home five miles north of Perry. Near the end of the track, ten
miles south of Curtis, a man was caught working in a field, and was
killed by flying debris as he ran towards a storm cellar. In
all, five deaths and twenty two injuries were blamed on the twister.

In 2001, a brief tornado touched down 16 miles southeast of
St Francis Kansas. The twister was visible from the National
Weather Service office in Goodland, with a debris cloud present.
