The Tri State Tornado of 1925
By Rafael & Trace
On march 18,1925 a big, smokey fog arrived the area. It hit Missouri, Illinois, and Indiana with a record breaking tornado. Over a couple of thousand of people got injured and it had over 200 feet long path. Also it had almost 700 deaths of horrific damage.
The tornado destroyed over 3 towns over the three states. Which each town had enormous damage to the entire area. The tornado destroyed schools, farms, and anything else in its way. People were devastated because of everything they knew was gone.
It took awhile for reconstruction because there was so much damage. People from all over the towns helped each other rebuild. The restoration took a lot of money to rebuild most of what used to be there. When they finally finished, everyone was able to go back to there normal lives.
