The Dallas/Oak Cliff tornado of April 2, 1957 killed ten people and injured over 200 with a path of damage that stretched from South Polk Street, through Winnetka Heights, into West Dallas before finally lifting near Arlington Park/Love Field.

At the time it was one of the most photographed and filmed tornadoes that helped lead research in understanding and forecasting these deadly storms. With the 60th anniversary of the storm approaching in 2017, Mark Doty, Chief Planner with the City of Dallas, is compiling information and stories for a comprehensive account of one of the most remembered, yet overlooked, events in modern Dallas and Metroplex history. Mark will recount the track of the storm with a special emphasis on destruction through Oak Cliff and Winnetka Heights.
