Without Warning: The Tornado of Udall, Kansas tells the story of the F5 tornado that struck Udall, Kansas on May 25th 1955 with no warning. The Udall tornado was—and still is—the worst in the history of Kansas and one of the worst in U.S history. Without Warning tells the story of this town’s destruction and rebuilding through the eyes of those who survived, and this story provides insights into how we might move forward into our climate-changed future.
