Yesterday, we heard from Janine and Brian Montgomery of Xenia. They were in the downtown Pizza Hut when the F5 tornado hurtled through on April 3rd, 1974. When it was over, there was no roof on the Pizza Hut and Brian says he started to look for his wife Janine in the jumble.


Brian and Janine Montgomery were interviewed by Tamar Kreke of the Green Public Country Library. Community Voices producer Alan Staiger created our series. For more on the Greene County Public Library's Voices of Greene County series, click here.
