Tornadoes in Iowa City 

Growing up, we lived in Iowa City fourteen years, and never once did a tornado come near. The lore in the Seventies was that a tornado hadn't come through Iowa City in forty years, which gave rise to all sorts of local wisdom about the river valley protecting it.


The Daily Iowan went up in a plane and got some stark aerial photos of the disaster. The extended Daily Iowan coverage is here. The Iowa City Press-Citizen (which Your Blogger delivered every afternoon circa 1973) has a slideshow here.

UPDATE: Lots more here.
