I was only 20 miles from where this tornado destroyed the little town of Barnaveld, WI. I was only 12 yrs old & vacationing South of the Dells with my dad, grandparents, and uncle. Although this happened more than 2 decades ago, I still remember seeing the total distruction caused by this F5 tornado.

i was 7 and lived between madison and milwaukee. seeing the destruction on the news, plus all the people crying, taught me to take safety seriously, and probably started my tireless fascination with tornadoes. i remember that the only thing left of the entire town was the water tower. everything else was matchsticks.

great site! nice work!

It was an extremly hot and humid day in early June. I was laying in bed in my apartment in Madison. Shortly before midnight the tornado sirens went off in the city and continued so long that I could not sleep. The following morning as I walked to work from the parking lot on the west side of Madison there were many helicopters and other ground vehicles heading west at top speed. I could only imagined what had happened. I found a TV and to my shock I was looking at what used to be Barneveld, Wisconsin. It looked like an atomic bomb had exploded there. It was a nice town that I had visited often. Nine people died from that event and that effects the entire culture of a small town. Since that time I have been fascinated by the story of this particular tornado as well as tornados in general.
