ON THIS DATE IN 1989: An F4 tornado tore through the southern part of Huntsville around 4:30 p.m.; it was responsible for 21 deaths 463 injuries. It touched down near Madkin Mountain on Redstone Arsenal, southwest of Huntsville. The tornado moved northeast towards the heavily-populated Airport Road area, where it would destroy or damage 80 businesses, 3 churches, a dozen apartment buildings, and more than 1,000 cars. It moved on, climbing over Garth Mountain, demolishing Jones Valley Elementary School, and destroying 259 homes in the Jones Valley area. The tornado was on the ground for just over 18 miles; twelve of the 21 fatalities occurred in automobiles as many persons were homeward bound during the afternoon rush hour.
