Those Kansas Summer Nights

Things got a little interesting last night around here. The latest round of fury from the heavens rolled through and this time took some of Manhattan with it. I'm in the process of figuring out what all happened, but this is the best I can figure where the tornado touched down or came close to touching down: (click images to embiggen)

It looks like the worst was a commercial area just north of my house, where a car dealership was heavily damaged and a True Value hardware store completely leveled. Several other building and a whole bunch of vehicles behind there are destroyed as well. And, just got word that the neighborhood just to the west of there was hit heavily too. Several buildings on campus are heavily damaged, and one laboratory completely destroyed.

Here's what I've been able to figure out of the area near my house:

I'll probably get some pictures today and keep this updated.

I am fine and everyone I know is fine. I have not heard any reports of injuries out of Manhattan yet. The warnings were very good and there was no surprise to this storm - it had been roaring up I-70 for quite a while before it descended upon Manhappenin'.

Blogger Jessica - 8:55 AM

Glad you're ok! I'm about sick of this severe weather season. We had several close calls, including one less than a mile from our house.

It's amazing the kind of damage mother nature can cause. Hopefully some good will come out of it...sometimes mission opportunities end up in (literally) your backyard!
