Primrose to mark 50th anniversary of tornado

Photo taken by Leonard Mlady shows the tornado closing in on Primrose, May 8, 1965.Even after 50 years, the memories are painful for some.
On May 8, 1965, a devastating F-4 tornado tore through the Boone County village of Primrose, killing four residents and leaving behind a 300-yard-wide path of destruction.
Clocks stopped at 4:55 p.m. in Primrose that Saturday.
That time will be noted during 50th anniversary observance of the Primrose tornado this Friday, May 8, in Primrose.
