Crumpled Vehicle

This image illustrates why cars and trucks are bad places to be in tornadoes. The Andover, KS, tornado of 26 Apr 1991 mangled this vehicle -- probably a van or early model SUV -- beyond recognition. It was rolled, battered by debris and ripped by winds near maximum tornado force. The tornado produced F5 damage in a subdivision of large, well-built homes about a half mile SW of this location, and was still extremely intense here -- near the ravaged Golden Spur mobile home park.
