This past weekend a large tornado outbreak devastated many areas across the Deep South...including one Tornado that tracked for more than 100 miles across the State of Mississippi, killing at least 10 people and injuring many more. 

Today, April 26th, marks the 19th anniversary of the F5 tornado that hit Andover, KS - Near Wichita - in 1991.  This tornado was the last F5 tornado in Kansas.  The first EF 5 tornado was the Greensburg, KS tornado in May of 2007.  On April 26th, 1991 at least 55 tornadoes touched down across the Mid-West and 24 deaths are blamed on the violent weather that day. 

Do you remember that day?  Where were you?  What were you doing?  Were you personally affected or do you know anyone who was directly impacted by the tornadoes on that day?

Tell me your story.

Here is a link to a youtube video of the Andover Tornado.
