35 Years Since the 1974 Tornadoes
It’s one of those where-were-you-when-it-happened moments. Throughout the afternoon and evening of April 3, a super outbreak of 148 tornadoes tore through 13 states and as far north as Ontario, Canada. The twister that touched down in Louisville destroyed part of the fairgrounds, injured 207 people, destroyed or damaged thousands of others. On the eve of the storm’s 35th anniversary, we’ll look back at that day with journalist Glen Bastin and meteorologist Tom Wills, who covered the tornado as it happened. Tune in, and call us with your memories of the storm and its aftermath.
