On August 11, 1993, one of the most unique tornadoes in history would form in among the Utah mountains of the High Uintas Wilderness. The highest elevation significant tornado and the strongest in Utah history, this event pushed the limits of tornadoes in rugged terrain farther than any other.
On July 18, 2004, 8 tornadoes touched down in North Dakota. This summary looks at the strongest, an F4 that annihilated a farmstead near Marion. This tornado produced what is arguably among the most intense damage from any tornado in the 2000s.
