- It is very rare to witness a storm
that produces SO many tornadoes. We literally lost count of the
number as the storm luckily passed just west of Dodge City, Kansas.
We believe we witnessed at least 9 tornadoes, possibly more.
There were at least two instances when there were two tornadoes
on the ground simultaneously, and possibly (pending video review)
3 touching down at the same time.
At one point, we had to backtrack on dirt roads that started
off good, but slowly deteriorated to the point where we had to
abandon them or risk getting stuck.
The storm just kept on producing tornado after tornado... The
strongest was rated EF-3. Here are pictures
of some of the damage near Dodge City.
