Last night at 10 p.m., Cindy Klose had a story about the 15 year anniversary of the Haysville tornado. It was May 3rd, 1999 and I was just finishing my junior year in high school. I was already determined to be a meteorologist by that time, and those major events only fueled my passion for weather. Historically speaking, some of the strongest tornadoes on record have touched down in the first 5 days of May. You have the May 3rd 1999 outbreak (Haysville, KS and Moore, OK) and remember Greensburg? That was May 4th of 2007. May can be a very violent month for weather.
