Path of the "47" Tornado

1947 Woodward Tornado Path

From White Deer, Texas to Whitehorse, Kansas, the tornado plowed a path of death and destrucion for 221 miles. Hardest hit - Woodward, Oklahoma suffered the brunt of the storm. Over 50 years have passed since the deadly twister wrecked havoc on this community. The old-timers of the area still talk about the "47 tornado," remembering those who died, the injured and the heroes. They remember where they were and what they were doing when disaster struck.
