DISCUSSION: As we look back to April 30th, 1953, an F4 tornado with winds over 200 mph hit the Warner Robins, Georgia, and portions of Robins Air Force Base, killing 18 people and injuring 300 more. There is no question that based on the footage attached above, this was a very scary and historic day across the state of Georgia which strongly imprinted upon the minds of many people living across the Southeast United States at that point history. Note how you even faintly see what appears to be suction vortices hitting the ground which are the features within an intense tornado which achieve the worst destruction.
