THE TONGANOXIE SPLIT
Fact or historic local myth? Delaware Indian Chief Tonganoxie himself said that there would be no more storms... Either way, if you're like me and grew up in NEK you most certainly have heard the term. Parents peering out the window during bad weather hoping for the storm to miss our homestead.
Experts say the 'Tonganoxie Split' is a vaporous local legend that “purports the mystical power of the hills” to divert severe weather away from the KC metro area, according to a list of “Fun Facts” from the Tonganoxie Chamber of Commerce. Whatever you believe, always have a plan in case a tornado comes rolling in to town.
