DISCUSSION: As we turn the clocks back to August 7th, 2010, we arrive at the occurrence of an EF-4 tornado touched down south of Tyler in Richland County, North Dakota and tracked to the northeast for roughly 2.5 miles before crossing the Bois de Sioux River into Wilkin County, Minnesota. In Wilkin County, the tornado continued for another 2.5 miles and lifted about 650 pm CDT. The total track length was about 5 miles, and peak winds were estimated at 175 mph. Thus, it goes without saying that this tornadic event was quite memorable for those people who were living either near or directly along the path of this historic North Dakota tornado.
