Lisle, IL Tornado

John Piepenbrok reminds us it’s tornado season with this shot taken by his Great Uncle in the Lisle, Illinois area after the devastating March 28, 1920 Palm Sunday tornado outbreak over the Midwest and Deep South. This photo shows the storm damage in the Lisle area. The storm produced 37 tornadoes which left 380 dead and 1,215 injured. Elgin and Melrose Park were hard hit in this area with 10 fatalities in Melrose Park.  Tornado watches were still more than 30 years away and the only weather information which was available at the time were forecasts in the newspapers from the day before.
