Tornadoes destroy Prairie center ranch, Sioux County homesteads

Tornadoes destroy Prairie center ranch, Sioux County homesteads

A tornado Monday evening in the northern end of Goshen County destroyed a ranch, but the family managed to escape unharmed.

Goshen County Emergency Management Director Shelly Kirchhefer says the twister destroyed the Gene Lay ranch in Prairie Center.

Kirchhefer said the ranch “took a direct hit, and the corrals, garages, barns and the house were destroyed. But everybody came out unscathed, pretty much minor injuries, that’s all. ”

Another tornado did significant damage to two homesteads 15 miles south of Harrison in Sioux County. A tornado knocked 65 train cars over 13 miles south of Alliance in Morrill County.
