|Title: Weather Diary 6 April 1936|
Concept: Killer tornadoes can and do occur far from the traditional "tornado alley."
Detail: 6 April 1936: In Gainesville, GA, a massive tornado swept through
a 4 block wide section of downtown, injuring almost 1,000 and killing
203. In 1936 the tornado warning system was nonexistent. One
wonders had the same event occurred today, if many of the deaths and
injuries could have been avoided. Property damage, unfortunately, cannot
be protected against the tornado fury, save for better building codes.
But, you can always rebuild, as has Gainesville.
