American tornado, the deadliest twister on record. It wiped out entire towns, injured nearly 3,000 people and killed 689, creating more damage than all the tornadoes put together in the prior decade. It struck without warning in the quiet town of Annapolis with a deafening roar that sounded like a freight train and in the following several hours cut a swath of destruction through 23 towns and cities in Missouri, Illinois and Indiana.

Furniture, household goods, bedding and clothing were scattered everywhere; about 40 cars were piled in a heap. In the schoolhouse, some 20 kids were battered to death and the headmaster bloodied.

The devastation reached its worst in West Frankfort, IL, where 350 people died and 650 were injured.
