Today in weather history

In 1892...

It was meteorological March Madness for much of Central and Eastern Kansas as severe thunderstorms spawned 9 strong to violent tornadoes that evening. A pair of vicious F4 tornadoes tore through parts of South Central Kansas. The first was nearly a half mile wide and was on the ground for 30 miles. It tracked from near South Haven to near Derby. The twister killed 7 and injured 40. The second tornado injured 60 on its 25 mile long, one quarter mile wide track. All 9 of the fatalities associated with this tornado occurred in Towanda which was almost destroyed in its entirety.
