I remember this day quite well even though I was only ten-years old. I turned on TWC to watch the local forecast and the weekly planner before catching the bus to school. One of the meteorologists showed a map of the US and there was a high risk of severe weather colored in pink over a good portion of Kansas and Oklahoma. The meteorologist mentioned this was going to be an extremely dangerous day in Kansas and Oklahoma. Then some feeling came over me that something truly horrible was going to happen. My mom and dad were working at St. Joseph hospital in Wichita and my dad got home earlier that day than my mom did. My dads friend and my mom got off of work later and only missed that tornado by 30 minutes. I was at my sisters apartment in Emporia, Kansas for it had a basement and tornadoes were touching down everywhere. The meteorologist on TWC was stating about the Andover tornado and that it was on the turnpike and I got really worried it would hit Emporia for I knew tornadoes could live a long time. Most of my family lives in the Sedgwick and Butler county Kansas and was worried about them. I found out later that they were all safe and I was so glad. In fact with the exception of me and one of my nieces born in Emporia, almost all my family members were born in Sedgwick or Butler county Kansas. It turned out to be a truly scary and it was unfortunate it killed 17 people and 13 came from the mobile home park near US 54. I wondered how many of you may have chased that day and experienced this tornado or any other one. In addition, I believe this was the day of the Red Rock, Oklahoma tornado that may also had been an F5.
