The 2028 Wichita-Park City, Kansas tornado was a deadly, long-tracked EF4 wedge tornado which cut a path through central Kansas, including the Wichita Metropolitan Area and its suburbs, most notably the town of Park City, in the early evening of Saturday, May 20, 2028. Touching down at 5:38 PM CDT near the town of Spivey in Kingman County, the tornado moved northeast into Sedgwick County while rapidly widening and gaining strength. The tornado struck Wichita at around 6:20 PM, and despite the issuance of a tornado emergency for the city, many residents were caught off-guard by the tornado's forward speed. The tornado then reached peak strength in the suburb of Park City before continuing into Butler County and dissipating at 6:52 PM.

The tornado caused a total of 57 fatalities and 637 injuries along its 44.60 mile path. The tornado remained on the ground for 1 hour and 14 minutes and reached a peak width of 1.10 miles. A clear streak of high-end EF4 damage was observed through northern Wichita, with damage in Park City described in surveys as being "near the exact threshold of EF4 and EF5 intensity". The tornado received a final rating of high-end EF4, with estimated peak winds of 195 miles per hour.

The Wichita tornado was the deadliest in Kansas since the 1955 Udall, Kansas tornado, which killed 80. The tornado's death toll was more than double that of the 2024 Liberal, Kansas tornado, which had previously been the deadliest in Kansas since 1955. Notably, the Wichita tornado was the third violent tornado to strike a major metropolitan area in five years; the previous two striking Dallas, Texas in 2023 and the Oklahoma City Metro in 2024. The Wichita tornado's rating was a subject of significant debate, with two survey teams concluding EF5 damage in Park City.
