A Terrifying, Deadly Storm Struck Washington In 1972 And No One Saw It Coming

Though twisters and violent storms can technically happen anywhere, Washington is not known for its tornadoes. While they’ll touch down here on occasion, especially in Eastern Washington, they typically leave minimal damage behind. But in 1972, Washington was hit with a tornado that quickly turned deadly.

Mother nature is nothing if not unpredictable. Luckily, most of the time Washington is a serene and beautiful place.
