Storm damages two Kansas State University sorority houses

June 14, 2022
High-velocity straight line winds in Manhattan, Kan., struck houses for the Kappa Alpha Theta and Chi Omega sororities; the houses were unoccupied.

A strong storm whipped through Manhattan, Kan., on Saturday and severely damaged two sorority houses at Kansas State University.

The sororities damaged were Kappa Alpha Theta and Chi Omega, which are east of the university's campus, reports The Kansas City Star.

The National Weather Service of Topeka has determined the storm damage was caused by straight line winds. Some areas of Manhattan experienced straight line wind speeds of 100 mph, which is the equivalent of wind speeds in an EF1 tornado without the rotation.

 Authorities said both sorority houses were unoccupied at the time of the storm.
