The Topeka Tornado of 1966

image of The Topeka Tornado of 1966This week marks the 45th anniversary of the 1966 Topeka tornado, one of the most destructive tornadoes in Kansas history. Join us 8:00 Sunday evening as we revisit the evening of June 8, 1966, with veteran broadcaster Bill Kurtis, who was on WIBW for 24 hours straight during and after the tornado. Host Kaye McIntyre will also talk to Bonar Menninger, author of "And Hell Followed With It," a gripping account of the 1966 tornado.
