...ON THIS DATE IN WEATHER HISTORY...

IN 1924, A VIOLENT F4 TORNADO DEVELOPED NEAR THURMAN COLORADO AND
MOVED EAST SOUTHEAST INTO KIT CARSON COUNTY NORTH OF FLAGLER. FOUR
FAMILIES NEAR THURMAN HAD GATHERED FOR MENNONITE SERVICES AT THE
CLOSE OF HARVESTING. AFTER THE MEAL, FIVE FUNNEL CLOUDS WERE
SPOTTED IN THE DISTANCE, AND TWO APPEARED TO TOUCH DOWN. THE MEN
LEFT ON WHAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN A RESCUE MISSION. NO DAMAGE WAS FOUND.
THEY RETURNED IN TIME TO SEE THEIR OWN HOME BEING SWEPT AWAY BY
ANOTHER TORNADO, KILLING NINE CHILDREN, ONE WOMAN, AND SERIOUSLY
INJURING THE OTHER OCCUPANTS.
