Kansas Tornadoes: More But Weaker

KSAL StaffDecember 14, 2015

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) – Meteorologists say Kansas saw more tornadoes than normal this year, but all but a few were weak and short-lived.

There were 108 tornadoes in Kansas by the end of August, 18 more than normal for that period. Nationwide there were 971 tornadoes through October compared with the nearly 1,150 that typically touch down each year.

Only a few days qualified as a tornado outbreak in Kansas, including one that came in November when 15 twisters touched down in the southwest and northwest parts of the state.

The National Weather Service says it was the first time tornadoes have touched down in November in northwest Kansas since official tornadoes began being kept more than 50 years ago.

A blizzard hit the same areas the next day.
