Impressive Severe Weather

July 27, 2010, 6:08 PM by Scot Mundt

Impressive Severe Weather
Bowdle, SD; May 22, 2010

Severe weather arrived in south central South Dakota this year on May 22.  An EF2 tornado tore through the east side of Winner and ripped apart barns outside of town.

That same day, a more powerful tornado caused widespread tree and building damage near Bowdle. It was part of several north central South Dakota tornado touchdowns; the strongest was rated EF4. 

A few weeks later, 10 tornadoes were reported in the Dupree area along with widespread straight-line winds and damage to several homes. The strongest tornado was rated an EF2. 

On June 25, another EF4 tornado touched down, this time just two miles south of Sibley, Iowa.  Strong straight-line winds have done tornado-like damage as well.  Eighty to 100 mile per hour winds hit Sioux Falls on June 11, toppling trees and causing plenty of damage to homes on the southwest side of town. 

More recently, straight-line winds hit northwest Iowa on July 22.  Eighty to 100 mph winds ripped through Maurice and Cherokee damaging buildings and uprooting trees.  And just this past Friday, record setting hail fell in Vivian. 

And then there's the flooding. Heavy rain has been hitting just about every week.  We're not out of the woods for severe weather, but there are 57 days until autumn.
