Storms developed during the late afternoon hours on May 19th generally along Highway 281 across south central Kansas. These storms quickly lifted northeast and as they did, they produced a few brief tornadoes in Kingman and Reno counties. Toward sunset, a supercell tracked across northern Chase county and produced EF-1 tornado damage to a farm northwest of Elmdale.
