Hey Kansas City residents! Living in the heart of the U.S., we’ve seen our fair share of Mother Nature’s mood swings. Sometimes, she’s calm and serene; other times, she reminds us of her fierce power. It’s a bond we share, witnessing the skies’ mood shifts together. Let’s journey back and remember the storms that left a mark on our city and our hearts.
A Look Back at Kansas City’s Most Unforgettable Weather Moments Since 2003:
- Central Plains Ice Storm – January 12-15th, 2007: Remember when our beautiful city turned into an ice kingdom? Trees weighed down with icy branches, power lines crippled, and daily life froze in its tracks. That was this storm, a true ice spectacle, albeit a disruptive one.
- Greensburg Tornado – May 4, 2007: Greensburg wasn’t just a headline; it was a heartbreak. This tornado took center stage, not only in Kansas but across the nation. Even today, its aftermath stands as a haunting reminder of nature’s might.
- Joplin Tornado – May 22, 2011: The sorrow wasn’t just Joplin’s; it was all of ours. The tornado’s path of destruction extended to many of our neighbors, showing us that nature’s fury knows no bounds.
- Great Plains Derecho – June 29-30, 2012: If you didn’t know what a derecho was before this, you certainly did after. Powerful winds sweeping across multiple states, leaving a trail of shattered property and days-long power outages.
- Tornado Outbreak of May 18-21, 2013: A chaotic series of tornadoes danced across the Midwest, turning serene skies into swirling tempests. It was a time of unity and resilience for communities across Kansas and neighboring states.
- Tornado Outbreak – November 16-18, 2015: Nature doesn’t always follow a calendar. These late-season tornadoes, dark and unpredictable, showed us just that, especially with the severe tornado that threaded its path near Montezuma.
- March Superstorm – March 11-14th, 2021: An eclectic mix of tornadoes, hail, wind, and rain – this storm was like a weather medley, affecting the entirety of Kansas City and beyond.
