This is old footage of a home movie my dad shot of tornado damage in my neighborhood in April 1996. Decatur was hit with tornadoes on two consecutive nights and this was the damage from the second one. The first tornado hit the south side of Decatur the night before. The video quality looks like it was shot in 1966. Ha! Not the best quality but for those who know the area, it brings back a lot of memories.+ More details

I shot and edited the video working through The Chapel in Fort Wayne, Indiana. The footage is unbelievable and doesn't even scratch the surface of the damage all around Oklahoma. I chose the song "Far Away" by Lecrae to really help capture the feelings that this disaster has caused. Keep Oklahoma in your thoughts cause it will be awhile before they get back to normal life.+ More details

TORNADO A film by Joe Muscanere and Mark Clark This is a documentary of a 1963 Kankakee, Illinois tornado which was, at that time, the most complete filmed history of a single tornado that had ever been recorded.. By todays standards of smartphone instant video, storm chasers, HD quality and internet access, it is hard to imagine the impact in 1963, of seeing on a film screen for the first time the different stages of a tornado's life. The tornado hit Kankakee, Illinois on April 17, 1963. All footage came from homeowners who grabbed their 8mm home movie cameras and filmed the approaching monster. A government research team collected the films shot by the homeowners and used them for years to get a better understanding of the life cycle of a tornado. Although the Fujita-Pearson F scale did not appear until 1971, it has been determined that the Kankakee tornado was an F4 storm. In 1975, as part of a project for The Institute for Storm Research at the University of St. Thomas in Houston, Texas, two filmakers, Mark Clark and Joe Muscanere, rescued the aging 8mm footage and made a documentary of the Kankakee event plus the aftermath of a F5 tornado which hit Xenia, Ohio on April 3, 1974. The film was originally shot in 16mm. In 2012 it was transferred to HD by DiJiFi in Brooklyn, New York.+ More details
