1974 TORNADO
Stamping Ground residents still remember 1974 tornado, part of largest outbreak in US history

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Sunday, April 6, 2014 11:56 AM EDT
LEXINGTON, Ky.


Forty years ago, on April 3 and 4, 1974, the greatest tornado outbreak in U.S. history took place, stretching from the Deep South to the Great Lakes.

The weather system that included 148 tornadoes spanned 18 hours and struck 13 states, including Kentucky. It killed 315 people and injured 6,100. The total damage reached a half-billion dollars.

Edna Jones was in third grade when the tornado hit Stamping Ground, Ky., on April 3, and for months she slept fully clothed, waiting for it to come back.

When the storm hit, she believed her family would be blown away; but they weren't, and neither was anyone else in Stamping Ground, a fact that residents of the Scott County village still consider remarkable because Stamping Ground was the hardest-hit community in Central Kentucky.
