Didn't see anyone else posting any pics so I thought I would show a few sent my way. Tornado left chapman which is 10-15 minutes from Junction City and hoped over Junction and hit Manhattan hard.
Here are some pics from Chapman KS.

News said it was 1/2 mile wide

Short of being a Greensburg disaster by about 20%

And godless. I was thinking the same thing when he was showing damages to every school and school office.

Anyone know if the people of Chapman plan to rebuild?

I don't think anyone knows at this point. As I mentioned in the other thread, I've got a friend who was just hired to be the new choir director at Chapman HS, and he hasn't heard from ANYONE yet.

With school starting in about 2 months I am wondering if this will drive up enrollment in surrounding schools IE: Abilene, Herrington and Junction City.

I can't imagine them trying to put up relocatables for 3 schools. Busing them to surrounding communities will probably be a must.

Sorry DaFace I didn't see your thread. My co-worker got these yesterday morning and I never got a chance to post them. I got a few hundred pics from Manhattan.

Na, I just threw those onto the end of another, ambiguously-titled thread. The pics are sobering enough that they probably deserved their own.

I'm mostly just hoping that my friend will be kept on in one capacity or another. He just bought a house there (that survived), so it'd be pretty rough if he ends up being out of a job.

Unrelated to Chapman (other than the fact that a tornado destroyed part of a town), but I came across this reading about the flooding in Des Moines. I guess an F5 tornado hit this town of Parkersburg, IA around Memorial day and they have a really cool interactive map on the Des Moines Register site that you can see an overview of the damaged area and then click on individual lots for before/after photos of the damage.

It's a very interesting perspective of the damage that tornadoes can cause.

I can't speak for everyone of course, but we'll rebuild. My place wasn't damaged as much as some others though.

Not really,....most people work in other towns (Abilene, Junction, Salina, Manhattan etc). Quite a few military folks that work on Ft. Riley as well.
Other than a couple convenience stores, a diner, and a few smaller businesses.

Yup

20 minutes from Ft. Riley means there are a LOT of people including soldiers and thier families living in Chapman and commuting to work as well as some of the industry in Abilene (Russel Stovers) and Junction City(Foot Locker and some grocery chain wharehouse just opened). Not much in Chapman business wise.

I live in Abilene, 10 miles away, and the paper today said that they plan to have school there in August. Chapman is a smaller town than Abilene, but they are the school for Dickinson County so most of the out-of-town kids attend school there. I know that enrollment in Abilene for next year is way up, and we really don't have room for the kids we have now, so I don't see how the Chapman kids could go here. I fully expect them to have classes in Chapman in August, probably in trailers like Greensburg. A co-worker of mine was just hired to teach there next school year and his house he was renting and vehicle are all trashed. Just moved in like 10 days ago.

Someone told me yesterday that the plan is to get FEMA Trailers, (Like Greensburg) as you said, to have school. It will be rough going for a year or two but they will have nice NEW schools when it is all said and done.

I guess they opened up Chapman today for volunteers to help clean up.

People tried for two days to get in to help and they got turned away. Who knows if they will come back now?
