|October 29, 1942 Berryville Tornado|
|At about 10:30 on the evening of October 29, 1942 Berryville, AR was struck by an F4 tornado that killed 29 people and injured over 200. 137 buildings were destroyed and damage totaled a half million dollars. The tornado was their 3rd in 32 years.|
|The only stories I know of are the one set of photos of the Jessie and Obern house is that it is my great aunt and uncle's house.|
686 And of course the best one is that the military photo of all the guys is of my future dad's military platoon. He met my mom who was a high school girl at the time while he was helping with the security in the aftermath of the tornado. They dated and married in March of 1943. The photo is a note from the commander of the platoon to the city of Berryville and a list of all the guys in the photo. My dad is 2nd from the right in the front row.
