Tornado of 1998: Send us your memories

The pre-dawn darkness on March 20, 1998, started much like any other for people in Hall and White counties.

They were up and about, getting ready for work. Parents were getting their kids out of bed, getting them ready for another school day.

But, in just a matter of minutes, the day was anything but just another spring day. For out of the darkness, from the west, came a tornado. And, when all was said and done, 12 of their neighbors and a sheriff's deputy from another county would be dead. Scores would be injured. And there would be millions of dollars in damage left behind to homes, businesses and schools.

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the North Hall/White County tornado, and AccessWDUN plans to commemorate the anniversary with special coverage.
