50th Anniversary of May 15-16, 1968 outbreak

Recommended Posts

Today marks the 50th anniversary of the start of the May 15-16, 1968 TOR outbreak in the Mid-Mississippi Valley.

Among the areas affected in this subforum were Charles City and Oelwein, IA.  NWS La Crosse summary: https://www.weather.gov/arx/ccy

Central Illinois was also affected by the outbreak.  Nothing on ILX's page regarding a summary of the event but the Bloomington (IL) Pantagraph had a story this morning on the devastation in Wapella (DeWitt County), along with links to several other related articles and historic photos:
