About 10:30 on the morning of May 11, 1886, the skies above downtown Kansas City changed from radiant blue to murky green, a sight that witnesses would never forget. A giant cloud formation barreling in from the southwest paused over the south bank of the Missouri River, casting darkness onto Lathrop School at Eighth and May streets.
