Another F5 tornado even larger than either the Blackwell or Udall tornadoes roared across South Central Kansas. It had a track 65 miles long and reached one mile wide. The tornado killed 23, injured 70, and caused $600,000 damage from Northwest Sedgwick to Southeast Marion Counties. Its average speed of 65 mph was the fastest on record until the Tri-State tornado of March 18, 1925.
