On this date back in 2015 a tornado developed over far southern Rice County and tracked southwest into Reno County. This tornado tracked just east of Nickerson producing EF-3 damage to a farmstead. The tornado was highly visible & was seen from dozens of miles away. #kswx
Ultimately #Barry was unsuccessful in its attempts to become axis-symmetric last night. However, it was able to intensify to minimal #hurricane intensity with the strongest winds focused in the active convection southeast of the center.
