EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) - EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) — The dangers of tornadoes that strike during the night and in cooler seasons will be the focus of a National Weather Service event marking the eighth anniversary of a deadly twister in southwestern Indiana.
The Evansville Courier & Press reports that Tuesday's public meeting will focus on the challenges and dangers of cool-season tornadoes such as the one that struck Vanderburgh and Warrick counties on Nov. 6, 2005.
The tornado hit at 2 a.m. and tore a 41-mile swath of damage through portions of Kentucky and southwestern Indiana. Two dozen people died. Most victims were in the Eastbrook Mobile Home Park near Evansville, which lacked a storm shelter.
The meeting will take place at the American Red Cross building in Evansville from 10 a.m. to noon.
