Cheyenne County Kansas

  

The blue bars in the chart below show the number of tornadoes occurring each year in Cheyenne County Kansas. For example, no tornadoes occurred in 1950, 2 occurred in 1971, and 4 occurred in 2007. More information about the tornadoes occurring in each year is given in the table at the bottom of this page.


 

The blue bars in the chart below show the number of tornadoes occurring in each month.  The red bars indicate the number of tornado days in each month.  A tornado day is defined as a day in which tornadoes occurred.  To help illustrate this concept, look at the month of March in the chart below.  The blue bar indicates that since 1950 a total of four tornadoes have occurred in March.  The red bar indicates that there has been only one day in March when tornadoes occurred.  This means, in this particular case, that all four tornadoes occurred on the same day.  In our case, this would be March 28, 2007.


 

In the table below, Width is in yards, Length is in miles, M is missing.  Property and Crop damage is in thousands of dollars.  Information prior to 1950 did not include property and crop damage estimates. Scale lists the F or EF rating of the tornado.  A Scale of "F" indicates no rating is available.  Locations listed in capital letters are county names, with upper and lower case being city names.
