East of Greensburg

The Greensburg tornado brings to mind the treatment of another just east of there in Kansas.

Some 83 were killed and 250 injured when another large tornado swept the town of Udall at 10:35 p.m. May 25, 1955. It was the news service, INS, that provided the memorable lead:

“The little prairie town of Udall, Kansas, died in its sleep last night.”

The follow-up sentence mentioned that what took a hundred years to build was “cut back to the sod….”

The imagery of the INS treatment remains long after the service was consumed by the United Press.
