    Kansas State Campus hit by tornado

    The K-State campus was hit by a tornado last night, causing some pretty major damage. While I have no love for K-State athletics, it is terrible when something like this happens to a Big XII brother.

    Dang - the midwest seems like it is getting drilled by everything this spring and summer! Hurricane season just started for us I wonder if we'll be having as much of the same fate.

    I am sorry if this offends anyone, it is horrible that this happened. However, I thought it kinda funny that the Wind Erosion Lab at Kansas State was destroyed by a tornado

    That does seem a bit ironic.

    Funny? No.

    Ironic? Certainly.

    Many reasons, none of which matter right now.

    Early estimates are $20 million in damages to the K-State campus alone. Imagine that kind of destruction at ISU. Crazy...

    Re: Kansas State Campus hit by tornado

    Were there any deaths??? Significant injuries??? After the Parkersburg tornado, I always wonder what a tornado of that magnitude would do to a major city or a college town.

    Re: Kansas State Campus hit by tornado

    I wonder why they didnt want the camera to zoom in at the end? Didnt want to see bodies flying around?

    Those are some of the most amazing tornado pictures I have even seen. Especially the one where the tornado is about to engulf those silos.
