In 2010, afternoon thunderstorms developed and moved northeast
across Red Willow County in southwest Nebraska. An apparent
microburst at McCook, Nebraska, resulted in a small area of damage.
A peak wind gust of 59 mph occurred at the Airport, but damage in town
occurred from an estimated 80 mph wind gust. A 6000 square foot
section of roof was torn from the local lumber yard and the sheet metal
wrapped around and damaged several vehicles, causing severe body
and tire damage. A nearby car dealership also sustained damage and
winds were strong enough to topple a light pole.
