... On this date in weather history...

In 1913, an outbreak of 10 strong and violent tornadoes
made for an infamous Easter Sunday for extreme eastern
Nebraska, western Iowa, northern Missouri, and extreme
western Indiana. Of the 10 tornadoes, 6 were violent
f4s. The deadliest tornado was a violent F4 that tore a
one quarter mile wide track of devastation through the
west and north sides of Omaha where 94 were killed. In
all, the vicious vortex killed 103, injured 350, and
caused $5 million damage. The track was 40 miles long
and at times reached one half mile wide. The first F4
event raced 55 miles from just west of Omaha northeast to
Logan Iowa. Reaching one half mile wide, this violent
vortex killed 22 and injured 50. The longest tornado was
an F4 that ran a 65 mile long, one half mile wide
Marathon from near Syracuse, in extreme southeast
Nebraska, to Pottawattamie County in extreme southwest
Iowa. The tornado killed 18 and injured 100. A second
F4 tornado occurred at the same time. This twister raced
48 miles and was one quarter mile wide. Starting 8 miles
south of Omaha, the tornado struck the south side of
counsel Bluffs where 17 were killed. In all, this
twister killed 25, injured 75, and caused $400,000
damage. The last 15 miles of the track may have been
from a separate tornado. The last F4 tornado was a three
quarter mile wide specimen with a track 22 miles long
that tore through Terre Haute Indiana.This terrific
tempest killed 21, injured 250 and caused around $1
million damage to Terre Haute alone. One Five Block area
