Fact or historic local myth? Delaware Indian Chief Tonganoxie himself said that there would be no more storms. Either way, if you're like us and grew up in NEK you most certainly have heard the phrase. Folks would peer out their window during bad weather hoping for the storms to miss their homestead.

Experts say the 'Tonganoxie Split' is a vaporous local legend that “purports the mystical power of the hills” to divert severe weather away from the KC metro area, according to a list of “Fun Facts” from the Tonganoxie Chamber of Commerce. Whatever you believe, always have a plan in case a twister comes rolling into town!
