Overview

During the afternoon of 17 May 2017, a powerful weather system tracked into the mid Missouri Valley, contributing to the development of numerous storms over eastern Nebraska and southwest Iowa. Despite the presence of an unstable air mass, most of the storms remained below severe levels, possibly due to unfavorable wind shear conditions in the atmosphere. The most notable event this day was an EF-1 tornado that formed just prior to 4 PM CDT near the Stanton-Cuming county line. Though the tornado was on the ground for only a few minutes, it hit a farmstead, causing some damage.
