A tornado outbreak on May 4, 1922, spawned a twister that struck Austin, Texas, before splitting into two tornadoes. This was the worst tornado disaster in Austin. Damage from the twin twisters was wide spread, with damage reported a St. Edward’s University, East Austin, the University of Texas, Manchaca, the State Institute for Deaf, Dumb, and Blind Colored Youths, and Oak Hill. One person was killed on the campus of St. Edward’s University when a roof was torn from a dormitory. An additional 13 people were killed throughout Austin and more than 50 people were injured. The funnel cloud hovering about the State Capitol building in this photograph would soon split into the twin twisters. (link)

My wife and her friend were in that one, they were pulling a horse trailer on 20 headed home. My wife went through the Lubbock tp0ornado, she thinks she is invincible, the other lady was a basket case. .

May 11, 1970. Remember it well! Mom was a basket case. Dad and I watched from the kitchen window as our back yard fence was pulled from the ground, posts and all.

I have seen three tornadoes.
I was able to watch watch one while standing on the bed on my truck from about 1/2 mile, I almost got sick it was so powerful and eerie.

The OP picture is pretty amazing considering the photo equipment of the time

I remember the one that hit Waco back in the fifties and killed a bunch of people.

Saw one while at tech school at Chanute AFB IL. Was marching my guys back to the dorms when we saw this thing snake down from the sky with multiple bends. Was amazing and mesmerizing watching it rotate. Then we saw a group of Marines running at us screaming about taking cover and we quickly followed suit. grin
