Have tornadoes ever hit west Lafayette and/or Lafayette?  I am going to have a posting that details the tracks of several tornadoes and what caused them throughout history. Has you town ever been hit directly?  I will dive into that too as many communities have been hit since 1820.

    I was only 4 when the tornado hit Monticello back in 1974. I can still remember that entire event. My mom had taken my sister and I to Burger Chef (remember that place?) and we had just sat down to eat. I remember my mom asking what that strange sound was like a freight train. She went to the window then screamed, grabbed my sister and I and threw us (literaly) into the interior hallway closet. I can still remember what it sounded like and how it made my ears pop. When it was all over, I cried because the tornado took our swing set. To this day, I still occasionally have dreams about a tornado and it’s always at that same house that I grew up in.
