On a day that has lived in infamy, the city of Xenia, OH, fell victim to the deadliest of 148 twisters during the April 3-4, 1974 Tornado Super Outbreak. Its track began southwest of the community before the vortex shredded through neighborhoods and the downtown district. From there, the storm continued its reign of terror into the towns of Wilberforce and Cedarville before lifting in rural Clark County. Over the following days, the loss of life rose to 36 people, the majority of which were in Xenia.
