In 1909, a pair of F2 tornadoes struck Butler County.
The second twister touched down 10 miles northeast of El
Dorado.  It was by far the more significant of the two,
as it had a track about 30 miles long.Crossing the
Butler Greenwood County line, the tornado passed about 4
miles north of Eureka.It injured 6, destroyed several
barns, and derailed an unspecified number of train cars.
The first tornado was short lived, destroying a barn 10
miles northwest of El Dorado.  In 1996, Wichita set an
all time record high for February when the mercury soared
to 87 degrees.
