On the night of June 11th, at 10:20pm, a category F-3 tornado at least a half-mile wide devastated the small town of Chapman, Kansas. It left one person dead and created an estimated $70 million in damages. Nearly 70 homes, including the town’s two churches, a funeral home, the elementary, middle and high schools were reduced to rubble. Another 215 homes were damaged as a result of the twister. This set of images was taken three weeks after the storm hit. A sign supporting the Fighting Irish of Chapman High School is posted on a residential street in Chapman, Kansas.
