Straight-line winds wreak havoc on Goshen County

“Of important note, this tornado occurred along the northern fringe of a much larger area of powerful straight-line outflow winds observed in excess of 90 to 100 mph,” the weather service explained. “Damage indicators from the straight-line winds throughout Scotts Bluff County were all pointed eastward. This was in dramatic contrast to the tornado path which featured a chaotic scattering of damage and debris, some of which was lofted north and even back west of the circulation path.”

Residents in the path of the storm system were lucky, according to Bozeman.
