Hudsonville Tornado Anniversary Program

Date: April 2, 2016
Time: 10:00 AM

See the commercial for this program here:

The year 2016 marks the 60th anniversary of the April 3 tornado that hit Hudsonville, Standale and many other locales in 1956.

Join us as we reflect on the path of destruction it caused at a program here at the library on Saturday, April 2 initiated and led by Ernie Ostuno from the NOAA.



Mr. Ostuno is especially interested in new materials that have not been seen before (photos, slides, home movies), items that were carried away in the storm and then returned, and last, any physical damage still remaining that can be photographed and documented.  This can be damage to buildings or surroundings (bent trees, etc.).

If you have any of these things – please let contact ERNEST.OSTUNO@NOAA.GOV or

More information to come soon!
