1965 Palm Sunday Tornado
The tornado swept through Russiaville at around 7:35 pm on Sunday, April 11, 1965 leaving nothing but devastation in its path. Many residents who lived through that fateful day still remember it with intensity. We have published a book of photos and stories that tell many of their stories.
We are now in the process of collecting stories and photos for a second volume. If you have a story to tell specifically about the Russiaville area or photos to share, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Indicate in the subject line "Palm Sunday Tornado Story".
