 Brief Description: An unusual October severe weather outbreak spawned a tornado which tore across parts of Phelps and western Buffalo counties. The tornado set down a few miles southwest of Loomis and rapidly moved northeast. Along its path in Phelps county, grain bins were damaged, power poles snapped and a roof was torn from a large storage building. One farmstead northeast of Loomis sustained major damage. The roof was ripped from the house and two walls were moved from the foundation. A pole barn was destroyed. Both the house and barn were a total loss. Once the storm crossed the Platte River, the tornado hit a trailer house just west of Elm Creek and deposited the shattered remains about 200 feet north of its original location. The tornado continued to move north and shortly dissipated. Another tornado formed from a different storm in northern Dawson county. This tornado passed through a farmstead causing tree damage, blew over grain bins, and damaged other buildings. The house sustained only minor damage.
