The Killing Wind takes you back to 1953, before weather sirens, doppler radar, and tornado warnings. On that fateful night in June of 1953, an incomprehensible F5 tornado, the most powerful of its kind in the world, descended during the dinner hour on a main east/west road in the northern section of Flint, Michigan. Go back and hear the story of one Buick nurse as she struggles to comprehend the total destruction of homes, schools, and -- lives.

Today, the tornado ranks as the ninth deadliest of all time, and the deadliest of the last 50 years.

When you see the destruction of the vehicles, remind yourself those are 1940's and 1950's Buicks, which were several thousands of pounds of solid steel, iron, and metal not like the flimsy plastic cars of today.
