Albion Twisted: NW Pennsylvania's Clash With Mother Nature - Erie News Now | WICU & WSEE in Erie, PA

Take a look back, 30 years ago, at Pennsylvania's worst tornado outbreak in Albion

We've spent many hours creating a special, 30-minute production from the Weather Department on the Albion Tornado. Not just a review or walk down memory lane - the show will be a look back at what happened through the lens of technological changes over the past 30 years as we move the story forward to 2015.

Some of our greatest talent from today and the past all covered the storm in 1985 for WICU or WSEE. We hear from them and their co-workers in addition to former reporters who have since moved on including Harry Hairston. 

Watch the whole show below:
