1911 - Two Killed at Lawrence.

Lawrence, Kan., April 13. - Two people were killed, scores of houses destroyed and the streets piled high with debris by a tornado which struck Lawrence at 8 o'clock tonight. Only a rough estimate of the damage can he made tonight, but the loss is conservatively placed at $150,000. The known dead are Mrs. Joe Sullivan, 55 years old, and Laura Childs, a colored woman employed on the farm of Claude Doubleday, two miles west of this place. Four more deaths have been reported, but the rumors can not be confirmed tonight. A dozen more were more or less seriously injured.
