Cheyenne NWS: Eight Tornadoes Reported On June 23
The agency says a total of eight tornadoes were reported around the area, although the agency says there may have been other twisters that were difficult to verify because of a lack of damage.
The agency posted the following on its website:
After several days of meticulous data interrogation, we have come up with a Public Information Statement (PNS) regarding the severe weather outbreak on Friday, June 23rd, 2023. Our analysis highlights eight tornadoes. The ratings ranged from EF Unknown to EF-2, with the most damage observed where tornadoes were rated an EF-2. While there may have been reports of more tornadoes than have been highlighted, it is very difficult to locate beginning and ending points of tornadoes without any damage to survey over open country. Lots more info can be found on the PNS! Here is the link for the PNS: https://nwschat.weather.gov/p.php?pid=202306272120-KCYS-NOUS45-PNSCYS
