|Title: Weather Diary 28 March 1920|
Concept: Really big wind in the Windy City.
Detail: During March, the tornado belt rapidly moves north.
Chicago discovered this fact as one of the worst tornadoes in history
roared through suburban Melrose Park and surrounding areas. Thirty were
killed and over 300 injured as the storm moved at full strength into Lake
Michigan. This twister certainly belied the "fact" that tornadoes "cannot
strike cities and will avoid the Great Lakes." In 1967, an F-4 tornado swept through Oak Lawn and and the south side, killing 37, injuring 1000, and causing $50 million in damages.
