Kansas Tornado Videos Show Huge Twisters 2 Days Before Oklahoma Devastation

Two days before a powerful EF5 tornado killed at least 24 people and damaged about 12,000-13,000 homes in Oklahoma, at least four tornadoes tore through south-central Kansas. One of the twisters was rated an EF4.

Miraculously -- although five farms and one house were damaged -- no one was hurt, according to CBS affiliate KWCH.

At least one of Saturday's twisters in Kansas' Pawnee County was classified as an EF4 by the National Weather Service (NWS) in Dodge City, Kan., and produced winds of up to 185 mph, an NWS spokesman told The Huffington Post by phone on Wednesday. The twister narrowly missed the tiny town of Rozel, which has population of about 160.

At its widest point, the tornado measured two-thirds of a mile across and cut a path seven miles long over the course of 29 minutes, according to The Wichita Eagle.

Several videos that claim to show Saturday's tornadoes in Pawnee County are amazing to behold. In one, a house seems to cling to its foundation as a large twister passes it by.
