A few storms erupted on the dryline during the early evening hours of April 19th west of I-135. As the storms progressed east they quickly intensified as they encountered better moisture. One storm in particular became the dominant storm that tracked across southern Marion and much of Chase county. This powerful supercell thunderstorm produced numerous tornadoes along with extremely large hail.


A total of 9 tornadoes were identified by NWS Survey teams across Chase County, with the strongest being an EF-2.
