Statement as of 6:00 AM CDT on May 01, 2016


... On this date in weather history...

In 1895... an F5 tornado went on a 22 mile
rampage... tracking from the northwest corner of Sedgwick
County to 6 miles northwest of Newton.The almost one
mile wide behemoth killed 8... injured 25... and devastated
25 farms... a few of which vanished. Debris was carried
for many miles and dead livestock were found everywhere.
Four fatalities occurred in each of 2 families who had
hesitated to take cover. It is possible they did not
recognize the nearly 1 mile wide funnel as being a
tornado.
