Today in weather history

In 1952...

A second outbreak of 31 tornadoes tore through Arkansas, Tennessee, Missouri, Mississippi, Alabama and Kentucky. The twisters killed 343 people, and caused around $15 million damage. Six of the twisters were ferocious F4s, two of which possessed tracks 65 miles long, and nearly three fourths of a mile wide. One F4 tornado, which tore through White County in North Central Arkansas, killed 50, injured 325, caused $3.5 million damage, and nearly destroyed the town of Judsonia. A second F4 tornado that roared across Western Tennessee killed 38 and injured 157. It caused $500,000 damage and nearly leveled the town of Henderson.
