April 26, 1991 Thoughts: 20 years later

Unlike many of the posts and stories on KWCH.com concerning the "Andover tornado", I wasn't here in Wichita at the time. I was a junior at KU and skipped out on a test that Friday afternoon to go chase storms.

It's so hard to believe that 20 years has passed. As I gave a weather safety talk this morning, I was reminded by the advances in technology that have improved our ability to keep us all safe (Doppler radar available anywhere, anytime; cell phones; the Internet; laptop computers).

Check out some of my older posts (here) and (here) concerning the April 26 event. The National Weather Service also has a large writeup concerning the events of that day.
