Today in weather history

In 1909...

A pair of F2 tornadoes struck Butler County. The second twister touched down 10 miles northeast of El Dorado and was by far the more significant of the two as it had track about 30 miles long. Crossing the Butler Greenwood County line, the tornado passed about 4 miles north of Eureka. It injured 6, destroyed several barns, and derailed an unspecified number of train cars. The first tornado was short-lived, destroying a barn 10 miles northwest of El Dorado.
