when a tornado swept up through
Sedgwick and Harvey counties in the
south central part of the state.
Andale, a village of less than 300
inhabitants, bore the brunt of the
twister's rage, eighteen lives being
the toll before the storm, which, ac
companied by a blinding rain, bore on
to the northwest.
The country southeast of Newton
furnished the remaining fatalities,
three lives being lost five miles from
Wreaks Fearful Havoc.
The country between Andale and
Newton was pierced by a path from
a quarter to t half mile wide, where
the twister ground everything in its
path either to death or to inanimate
destruction. Sedgwick, the largest
town between Andale and Newton,
barely escaped from the storm's fury,
a few houses in one corner of the city
limits being the only loss.
