People who were at the Blue Max Kart Club on Saturday got a front row seat to the tornado. People at the track reported feeling a gripping chill just before the tornado touched down.
“We’re holding all of the tents down. We’re getting pelted with hail. You know, it was just like complete Armageddon for a while,” Don Delia said.
No damage was found, but surveyors did note that giant tumbleweeds did get lifted into the air.
The tornado tracked over fields that had already been harvested, NWS says.
A small orchard was also hit near the end of the tornado’s track. Some trees were bent over, but surveyors said nothing was broken off.
