A squall line moved through Texas and produced four significant (F2 or higher) tornadoes on February 8, 1935. We take a look at the deadliest twister in this summary. It was an F2 that tracked from near Ninevah through Grapeland. Along the 24.6-mile path, 12 people were killed, and 70 others were injured. The Murray Plantation was laid to waste.

Pinellas Park, FL F3 Tornado – October 3, 1992

NEW FREE SUMMARY! It was Saturday morning, October 3, 1992. Many residents in Pinellas Park were quietly making their way through their Saturday chores or working on home projects. Retired couples were watching their favorite shows in their recliners or playing cards in the front rooms of their mobile homes. Little did they know that unexpected severe thunderstorms were about to erupt across their little corner of west-central Florida. Five tornadoes were produced in the Tampa Bay/St. Petersburg area that morning. Two of the twisters caused fatalities. This summary details the strongest and most deadly tornado to occur on this day.

The South Dakota Tornado Outbreak of August 28, 1884

NEW PREMIUM SUMMARY! On August 28, 1884, a deadly localized tornado outbreak would unfold across portions of eastern South Dakota. One of these twisters would become the second earliest photographed in history. There are sharp discrepancies over which tornado that day was photographed, and there is no detailed summary of the event in its entirety. In this article, I attempt to solve both of these longstanding unknowns.
