Path length: 11.3 miles
Width: 300 yards
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. Damage was around the Sawyer area. Could not find any mention of this in the newspapers and this tornado is not a part of Significant Tornadoes by Thomas Grazulis.
SPC coordinates: Start: 37.52 / -98.67 End: 37.47 / -98.47
The Storm Data Narrative states that the tornado moved from south to north and hit farms SE, E and NE of Sawyer. The plot above shows the path based off the SPC coordinates. It is incorrect as it has the path starting at Sawyer and moving SE
Note: Exact tornado path may not be straight and/or continuous.
We gathered information for this event from the SPC & NCDC Databases and the November 1964 Storm Data Publicationnd found the following differences:
- SPC/NCDC have an 11.3 mile path length.
- Storm Data has a length at 15 miles.
