    Tornado reduces Oklahoma town to rubble

    The town of Woodward, Oklahoma, is nearly wiped off the map by a powerful tornado on this day in 1947. More than 100 people died in Woodward, and 80 more lost their lives elsewhere in the series of twisters that hit the U.S. heartland that day.

    ...

    As the tornado traveled on in its nearly 100-mile-long trip, it got even wider. By the time it reached Woodward it was reportedly as big as two miles wide.

    Today is the 30th anniversary of a tornado that ripped through our town in Oklahoma and killed three people. Not the devastation that happened in Woodward, but folks still remember it.
