I remember that well, I was stationed here at McConnell AFB.<quoted text>
I was at Fort Leavenworth, KS when Topeka got hit in June 8, 1966. I had just finished 9th grade and was at the PX when the tornado warning sounded. There was a convenience store in the basement and that was where we went and it was packed.
The lights went out after about a half hour and it was another half hour before we were allowed out. It was very stuffy down there with a whole bunch of people.

If you're going to live in "Tornado Alley" you'll have to learn how to live with them.
