Day of the Killer Tornadoes


My good friend Sharp has beaten me to the punch on this one. In this post he reviews the film entitled, "Day of the Killer Tornadoes". This is a must see for any weather geek, storm chaser, or person intereted in tornadoes or emergency management/response. Sharp embedded videos from the old film that are worth the time invested. The whole show is less than 30 minutes.


The Superoutbreak of April 3rd and 4th, 1974 was the largest tornado outbreak in recorded world history. No study of this outbreak is complete without viewing this film. I have written about my memories of this outbreak a few times and I'm sure I will again in the future. Here is a link to a few of my posts about the event.

Were you in Alaama then Rick? I have heard of others who turned their childhood fears into adult adventures when it comes to storm chasing/spotting. That is definitely to your credit. My 8 year old said that it "doesn't do any good" to be scared of storms. He doesn't understand why some of his classmates are afraid.
