Strong thunderstorms began developing across parts of north central Kansas around 400 PM on Labor Day afternoon, September 7th, sparked by an unstable airmass and weak upper level disturbance. As storms tracked northeast over the course of the next few hours, one cluster became severe, moving roughly along a narrow corridor from near Phillipsburg and Glade Kansas, northeast to near Blue Hill, Nebraska. Here are a few of the storm report highlights:

  • Phillips County, Kansas: Quarter size hail and 1.5 inches of rainfall in a very short time, 4 miles east of Glade   

  • Webster County, Nebraska: Half dollar to golf ball size hail in and near Inavale, including windows broken out of a home 

  • Franklin County, Nebraska: Estimated 70 MPH winds in Riverton
