F-Scale Killed Injured County Path
  05/04/1961 1740 10 N/A F3 1 0 Blaine W of Geary - Near Geary

A tornado formed west of Geary and moved northeastward through Blaine County near Geary. The tornado severely damaged or destroyed near 20 buildings. One person was killed in one of the demolished buildings.

  04/20/1984 1538 13 10 F1 1 7 Blaine Canton Lake

A brief, short-lived tornado touched down in a campground at Canton Lake in Dewey County, destroying 6 mobile homes and a recreational vehicle. A woman was killed when the trailer in which she was residing was blown "end over end" down an embankment, and an additional 7 people were injured. Damage was estimated at $100,000.

  05/24/2011 1420-1444 13 880 EF3 1 2 Dewey/ Blaine/ Major 3 W Canton - Canton Lake - 6 WSW Fairview

This large tornado began west of Canton in Dewey County and moved north-northeast toward (and eventually over) Canton Lake. The damage was confined to trees and power poles/lines during the early stages of the tornado. However, more significant damage occurred as the tornado moved into Blaine County.

The tornado moved northeast toward Canton Lake, which is where more significant damage occurred. Near the lake, on both sides where the tornado crossed, significant tree damage occurred. Numerous trailer homes were knocked over or destroyed. On the south side of the lake, two injuries occurred at the Canadian Campground. Several other campers took shelter in a concrete bathhouse. Although the bathhouse sustained damage, no injuries were reported. Other concrete structures (benches, pick-nick tables, etc.) were knocked over or shattered. On the other side of the lake, southwest of Longdale, significant damage continued to more structures and trees.

The large, violent tornado continued due north into Major county. The tornado hit homesteads and barns, severely damaging most structures, and splintering trees and power poles. One of the farmsteads received on the upper end of EF-3 damage, with the house completely collapsing and the trees on the property debarked and snapped. The tornado continued near Cedar Springs, damaging the church roof, and severely damaging a mobile home and several buildings at a farmstead. The tornado finally lifted southwest of Fairview.
