Second Saturday at Hagerman NWF

03/11/2023 @ 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Texas Tornadoes

Second Saturday at Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge on Lake Texoma

Texas leads the nation in tornadoes. Marlene Bradford will share with us a look at the deadliest Texas tornadoes as well as some historically important ones that did not cause great loss of life. In addition, there will be a brief look at tornado occurrences in local counties. Perhaps most importantly she will share important information on tornado safety.  Marlene Bradford has spent most of her life in Tornado Alley. Her doctoral dissertation at Texas A&M University was Scanning the Skies: A History of Tornado Forecasting which the University of Oklahoma Press published in 2001. She is also the author to Texas Tornadoes: The Lone Star State’s Deadliest Twisters; Arkansas Tornadoes: The Natural State’s Deadliest Twisters; Tennessee Tornadoes: The Volunteer State’s Deadliest Twisters; and Incredible Destruction in Central Texas: The Jarrell Tornado. Dr. Bradford is also the editor of the multi-volume Notable Natural Disasters. Her love (besides tornadoes) is teaching. She retired after more than twenty years of teaching U.S. history at the college and high school level, and currently resides with her husband In Garland, Texas.
