Biggest snow storms of the past 20 years

In the past 20 years, five storms have dropped 5.6 or more inches of snow on Lawrence. With the Feb. 1, 2011 storm expected to drop 9 to 13 inches of snow on Lawrence, it would easily be the most snowfall Lawrence has seen in the last 20 years, and would also approach the top five all time.

Douglas County law enforcement and emergency medical personnel work the scene of a car versus tractor trailer accident Oct. 23, 1996, just east of Big Springs on U.S. Highway 40. The accident took the life of a 22-year-old Tecumseh woman, when her car struck the truck, nearly head-on.
