Twelfth Anniversary of May 3 Tornado

The Wichita Eagle’s website has produced an excellent short video of Sedgwick County Commissioner and former Haysville Mayor Tim Norton recalling his experience twelve years ago today, when the devastating tornado of May 3, 1999 struck Haysville.

For a series of photographs reviewing some of the damage from that tornado, see our tenth anniversary posts here, here, and here, featuring photos donated by Jody Miller.
