DISCUSSION: Back on February 10th of 1921, the town of Gardner, Georgia was tremendously devastated by a massive, estimated F4 tornado that caused an entire section of the small town to disappear within minutes. This tornado killed 32 people and injured 100. The day had to be a very scary one based on the fact that at that point in history there was no national radar or satellite network in place which limited the ability of forecasters to do as effective a job as possible in order to save as many lives as possible. Thus, it is a strikingly different world we live in today than the world in which forecasters live in back in that point in history.
