Severe weather rips through Barber County

By Jessica Wright

The Gyp Hill Premiere

The past two weeks have been quite interesting in terms of severe weather in our county. Saturday, August 5th, the southern part of the county was pummeled by a strong storm which resulted in several homes and businesses receiving substantial damage in Kiowa. The storm also ripped the recently renovated grandstand across the football field nearly all the way to the visitor’s section. Electricity was out in Kiowa until 1 a.m. Monday morning. The cause of this damage is hazy, some say it was a tornado, some say a microburst. This storm ripped roofs from homes and even crushed a garage like a can.

Wednesday August 9th, there was a large super cell passed through Kiowa around 7:50 p.m. which caused the highway to look like winter with the amount of hail the storm produced. Earlier that day, a strong storm passed through Medicine Lodge causing a downed power line, downed tree limbs, and quite notably caused a metal shed behind the Farmer’s Co-op being blown nearly to the parking lot at White’s Foodliner.
