Small tornado confirmed in SE Kansas

FORT SCOTT, Kansas (AP) – A team from the National Weather Service has confirmed the touchdown of a small tornado in southeast Kansas this week.

KOAM-TV reports the twister dropped Monday evening in Bourbon County, near Bourbon State Lake. No injuries were reported.

The Weather Service rated the tornado an EF-1, about 100 yards wide with maximum winds of about 90 mph. It was on the ground for roughly a minute.

The tornado moved a mobile home about four feet off its foundation, destroyed a small shed and blew a boat into a tree.
