But those storms were minor compared to the one that hit Kansas City on May 20th, 1957. The Ruskin Heights Tornado was among the most powerful ever recorded. It obliterated the new neighborhood that it's named for, and killed dozens of people. KCUR's Walt Bodine was there before the dust cleared.</p> Fri, 14 May 2010 16:09:44 +0000 Frank Morris & Walt Bodine 6624 at http://kcur.org Walt Covers KC's Worst-Ever Tornado
