Here is the start of our blog to add your memories of the 1957 Ruskin Heights Tornado. Tell us your memories or how your life was affected by the Ruskin Tornado.
It started in Martin City, and moved directly to our neighborhood. I remember my Father looking out the window in my parent's bedroom. My Mom and I were under the bed, and the sound of trains shook the house. Mom called Dad to get under the bed and quickly the roar passed over our house. Our neighbor across the street my best freind was asleep in his bedroom against the wall facing the street westward. His bedroom window imploded and sent glass shards into the wall opposit his bed. Rubble was everywhere, but we were safe.
