Tornado Season Near If Not Already Here

Last night we heard the tornado warning sirens for what I believe was the first time this year excluding the Monday noon tests. Tornado season is approaching as is the 10th anniversary of the May 3rd tornado that devastated Haysville.
Our town has changed a lot in the past 10 years due in large part to the 1999 tornado. Visitors to Haysville would never know the destruction that was done but residents will never forget it.
