Tornado demolishes the railway station in Braceville, Ohio, killing one
A quarter-mile wide tornado touched down in Braceville, Ohio completely destroying the town's railroad station. A flying fence rail killed one person as the twister went on to the north east, demolishing one house and unroofing another. On its path of around two miles, the storm scattered trees and debris over the railroad track and delayed service for some time. (By John Osborne)
