These photographs from a Reno County resident capture the brief but damaging tornado that touched down between Nickerson and Hutchinson Monday night.

While the rest of his family took shelter in the basement, Steve Stacey took several photos of the tornado as it touched down and churned perhaps a half-mile north of their house before ending.

The National Weather Service office in Wichita has sent a damage survey team to the area to determine the tornado’s path and strength.
