Historic November Tornado Outbreak

Associated Press - November 16, 2015 8:15 pm

The National Weather Service says its preliminary data shows Kansas had 124 confirmed tornadoes in 2015 - 83 more than in 2014.

The National Weather Service says a tornado outbreak that caused minor damage in northwest Kansas was the latest on record in that part of the state.

At least 10 tornadoes were reported in western Kansas early Monday evening, snapping power poles and damaging sheds over largely rural areas.

Meteorologist Jerry Killingsworth in Goodland says a tornado damaged roofs and broke windows in the tiny Gove County town of Grainfield, which could get 3 to 6 inches of snow on Tuesday, depending on when it starts falling.

The severe weather also brought hail along a line that ran vertically from Oklahoma to Nebraska. Killingsworth says the line of storms moved slowly east while individual storms moved northeast.

He says blizzard conditions should make it into extreme northwest Kansas early Tuesday morning.
