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

In 2006, a line of intense thunderstorms developed across eastern
Colorado and progressed into northwest Kansas and southwest Nebraska
during the afternoon hours. The storms produced 3 tornadoes,
flooding and intense outflow winds of 70 to 90 mph. Significant tree
and power line damage occurred across the region, with numerous
reports of damaged or overturned agricultural irrigation systems.
One brief tornado damaged a few businesses just west of Highway 27
and north of Interstate 70 in the city of Goodland. A metal frame
door was ripped off its hinges and flung 150 feet across the
highway, while a large dumpster was rolled 150 yards into a field.

In 2011, wind gusts estimated at 90 mph resulted in damage north of
Stratton, Colorado. A grain bin, barn and an unoccupied trailer home
were severely damaged in addition to several vehicles and light
poles. West of Kirk, Colorado, a building under construction was
blown down by strong winds estimated near 85 mph.
