The SPC Database lists this F2 in Pratt County, KS with a path length at 11.3 miles. Storm Data has a slightly longer length at 15 miles. Unfortunately, not a lot of information to be found on this twister. Storm Data states a path from north to south with extensive damage to several farms in and around Sawyer. Could not find any mention of this in the newspapers and this tornado is not a part of Significant Tornadoes by Thomas Grazulis.
