The 30th Anniversary of the Wichita-Andover Tornado is One Week From Today

Duke Evans

I have been working with the Wichita Eagle on special coverage of that terrible tornado which will appear in print and online this Sunday. There will be a print story telling the story in chronological order along with a video. 

That tornado has been ranked by one researcher as the 5th strongest tornado since quality records began in 1950. While the tornado tragically killed 17, that was a small fraction of the number of fatalities that would have occurred without the storm warning system. 

There will also be some additional coverage here on the blog as to the meteorological aspects of the storm.
