The tornado was half a mile wide when it set down on the western edge of town and began churning, slowly, for six miles through the city. It killed 50 people and left another 10,000 homeless. When the debris was cleared, the questions start: How do we make this town again? A unique interactive documentary produced in conjunction with ITVS Interactive, "After the Storm" is the story of what happens when we pick up the pieces and start over again.

"It seems to me we were not particularly shocking people at all. We just faced so many shocking situations – Depression, WWII, the Red Hunt, the Bomb and its aftermath, the Loyalty Oath and the race issue in the South – it seems to me that the Events themselves were the shocking things and if they had not come to us we would have stayed as we were – good Presbyterians, white supremacists, Junior League, Garden Clubs, etc...I do not regret that we were stirred up at all. It just seems to me that History was the shocker instead of us." - Virginia Durr, in a letter dated 1976
