Seven tornadoes were confirmed on September 8, 1986. 4 of the 7 were in the state of Iowa and this strongest of the day was this F4 that travels through parts of Polk and Jasper Counties. The Storm Data entry states, “the devastation might have been much greater, but the storm missed hitting any towns.”
In today’s summary, we are looking at an F4 that made a trek over 20 miles from Craig County in Oklahoma into Southeast KS. There is a little confusion on how this tornado tracked and which counties should be included in the track.
A violent tornado moved through parts of Portage and Waupaca Counties in Wisconsin on September 26, 1951. It was 1 of 3 tornadoes confirmed on this date and 1 of 2 given a rating of F4. Most of the time, the tornado was in Waupaca County.
Going WAY back with this tornado summary: September 25, 1900. Per Thomas Grazulis, the path length was 6 miles. He gave this a rating of F3. There were 11 injuries and 2 fatalities.

Per the September 2006 Storm Data Publication, “On September 22, 2006, the WFO Paducah forecast area was struck by the worst tornado outbreak in its recorded history during the month of September. The first known F3 and F4 tornadoes, as defined by the Fujita Tornado Scale, in the month of September struck Perry County, Missouri and Massac County, Illinois. The combined result of these two tornadoes was about $8 million dollars in damage and eight injuries requiring hospital care.”
There were 4 tornadoes confirmed on September 21, 2005, all in the state of Minnesota. A series of supercells pushed through the east central part of the state producing not only the tornadoes but large hail, flashing flooding and widespread wind damage. This summary looks at the strongest tornado to occur, an F2 in Anoka County. Along with the tornado, the NWS Twin Cities stated “a rear flank downdraft was also responsible for causing damage in parts of Coon Rapids and Blaine.”
