(AUDIO) Tornado touches down on Cuming/Stanton County Line

New information:

A tornado reportedly touched down on the Cuming/Stanton County Line on Wednesday. National Weather Service Meteorologist Dave Fobert. “It was pretty isolated. And as far as I know that one Farmstead was the only damage associated with that storm. As it moved off to the north the storm itself kind of weakened. And there was no additional reports that we’re aware of.”

5 buildings were damaged, and power lines are down, according to Cuming County Emergency Management Director Bernie Hunke.

No injuries have been reported.

The tornado was undetected on radar as no warning was issued. “It’s kind of what they call a low top convection because we’re under the cold air of an upper level low pressure system, a loft. So these storms are generally weak and short lived for the most part. And they’re one of the more difficult type of tornadoes to detect, Fobert said.”

Fobert says the tornado hit a house.
