A terribly destructive tornado struck Omaha, Nebraska on Easter Sunday, March 23, 1913, with the toll being the loss of 500 lives, 350 people injured, 2,500 people left homeless, 550 homes demolished , 11 chuches wrecked, 8 schools wrecked, at an estimated loss of $5,000,000. We have joined these two publications together because none of the numerous photographs of the destruction duplicate themselves, and present a broader view of the devastaion.
