Eyewitness accounts of death and destruction wreaked by two killer tornadoes! Since 1950, tornadoes have struck every state in the union, killing thousands. On one day in 1978, 147 deadly twisters swept through Ohio, Kentucky, and Alabama, killing 307 people in the US and 8 in Canada. This is the story of these deadly “killer” tornadoes, and the heavy toll in loss of life and property damage these storms have actually caused. This program also includes interviews and impressions of survivors as well as emergency drills and civil defense techniques now being used to prepare for such natural disasters.
