In 2011, an EF4 tornado struck St. Louis. Possessing a
track 22 miles long, the tornado severely damaged around
20 homes and left thousands without power. But most
noteworthy, the tornado hit one terminal at Lambert
international Airport.The terminal sustained such
significant damage that the Airport had to be closed for
nearly 24 hours. Eight aircraft were damaged, two of
which were significant. In 1944, from the 22nd through
the 24th, the Little Arkansas River wasn't so little. It
rose to extremely high levels in Wichita, where it
flooded around 2000 homes. Flooding along the Walnut
river covered much of Winfield. In 1883, an outbreak of
around 15 tornadoes ravaged the deep south, of which 6
were strong or violent. The 2 most devastating twisters
were f4s. The first F4 had a track 45 miles long and
averaged one half mile wide. It tore across southern
Mississippi from 30 miles east of Natchez to around 30
miles southeast of Jackson. There were 56 known
fatalities and around 300 injuries. The second F4, which
had a track 25 miles long and one half to three quarters
of a mile wide, ravaged part of southwest Georgia. The
tornado killed 10 people and injured 80.
