Crumpled Vehicle

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 vehicleprobably a van or early model SUVbeyond 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.
