Baldwin ducks tornado as storm sirens sound
April 18, 2001
For a few minutes Saturday night, a funnel cloud dropped groundward as it headed to Baldwin City. Storm sirens were sounded and residents scurried to cover. But, almost as quickly as it descended from the wall cloud, the potential tornado went back up. Not very many people actually saw the funnel cloud. Lowell Stansberry and his sons Glen and Edd did, however. They were on their porch about a mile and a half south of Baldwin when the wall cloud gave its glimpse of the funnel around 7 p.m. “From our vantage point, it was ugly,” said Lowell Stansberry. “It had to have been at least a half-mile wide and it was at least 70 percent on its way to touching ground. I thought it was going to touch down. It was really an impressive sight. “It looked like Baldwin was going to be history,” said Stansberry. “It lasted for about a minute. Then it went back up. Just as it went over Baldwin, instantly it went back up. We’re at a good vantage point up here on the hill. We were watching it come down. It was close.”
