Here Are 10 Things You’ll Want To Keep Handy Now That It’s Finally Tornado Season In Kansas
Tornadoes are a reality for just about every Kansan. Though they don’t often happen in every part of the state, we’re still smack dab in the middle of tornado alley. We have tiny rope tornadoes that touch and go during regular storms, or giant, fast moving tornadoes that wipe out entire towns, such as Greensburg. Whatever the size, any tornado has the potential to be dangerous, even if we like to chase them and pretend otherwise. Let’s take a look at all the important and funny things you may need during tornado season in Kansas. We hope you don’t have to use them, but we always want to be prepared. After all, Kansas averages over 40 tornadoes annually, with most of them being category F3 and above.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.

We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
