  1. This storm defined my childhood as the 57 Ruskin tornado blew through what would be the neighborhood I grew up in only a couple of years later The eye witness accounts captured here are from the older brothers and sisters and the parents of my classmates As a result of this storm I spent my elementary years on constant storm alert We had tornado drills at school than spelling tests Even years later, community members talked about where they were when the tornado came through It was the defining [...]


  2. This book has been on my shelf for quite some time, and I ve skimmed through it than once, but the 60th anniversary of the storm prompted me to pick it up and read every word On a warm and windy May evening in 1957 a tornado dropped from the sky near the small farming community of Williamsburg, KS As it moved in its persistent path of destruction, it killed at least 6 people in 2 counties in Kansas before slamming into southwestern Jackson County, Missouri Likely an F5 storm by today s standard [...]


  3.

  5. An emotionally heart wrenching and poignant account of the May 1957 Ruskin Heights tornado If you re a storm fanatic as I am, this is one to read and remember that it s not just about the storm, but it s about the human cost


  6. Very good account of the 1957 Ruskin Heights, MO tornado Could ve been a bit narrative as opposed to jumping around amongst various recollections but that s only a minor distraction.
