Abstract

This storm began in Nevada and moved eastward about twenty miles between 6:30 and 7:00 o'clock p.m. Its path, at first only two rods wide, increased somewhat irregularly as it advanced reaching a maximum of nearly 100 rods about fifteen miles from the starting point. The tornado moved north four miles in going eighteen and one-half miles east. The greatest damage was done by the storm in Nevada, and in rural districts where it crossed building sites at highway intersections as at the Lounsbury farm three miles northwest of Colo. Its destruction was most complete in the right half of its track and in places where its path led up medium to steep slopes. Buildings, trees, crops or fences were injured or ruined on fifteen farms.
