On the afternoon of May 21, 2019, a series of low-topped supercell thunderstorms spawned at least half a dozen tornadoes across northeastern Kansas. These tornadoes stayed mostly in rural locations, but one did swipe the western side of the town of Mayetta with EF-1 damage. Other tornadoes formed in Dickinson, Geary, Shawnee, and Jackson counties.
