(WICHITA, Kan.)—It is severe weather awareness week in Kansas. This is a good time to get your emergency kits ready, and put plans in place in case bad storms hit your area.
"The bedroom ceiling and roof had come off, I had a satellite dish and fan sitting in the middle of my bed," said Pinaire mobile home park resident Charlie Wyatt.
"I had a double wide out here before and it split it right down the middle and it moved it over 6 feet," Wyatt said.
Wyatt will never forget April 14th, 2012. At first she wasn't worried about the weather warnings that day, but she ran to the storm shelter just minutes before the tornado hit.
"When they say tornado warnings, I guarantee you I will be down there with a cup of coffee waiting," Wyatt said.
The Pinaire mobile home park in Oaklawn was one of the hardest hit areas. The tornado destroyed or damaged dozens of mobile homes.
Theresa Donnelley just moved into the park a few days ago. With two-year old twins at home, she's not taking any chances during this severe weather season.
"Just keeping an emergency bag ready, and knowing where all the tornado shelters are and stuff," Donnelley said.
There were about 130 mobile homes in the park before the tornado hit, about 60 have returned.
"My daughter said I'm not moving back," Wyatt said. "Well, they delivered her house right before Christmas, that double wide down there."
Wyatt says more are coming. She'd love to see the park fill up again with residents,not more storm debris.
"Hopefully they will leave us along now, because I don't want to start over again," Wyatt said.
On Tuesday, at 1:30pm the National Weather Service will set off all tornado alarms for a state-wide drill. It's your chance to practice your emergency plans at home or at work.
