Kathy Lundstrom grew up on home videos taken by her father, Henry Ekberg. “Once a year when we were kids, my father would get out the projector and we would watch all the fun we had as a family. The viewing also included my father’s footage of destruction from the Worcester Tornado,” said Kathy.

On the afternoon of June 9, 1953, Henry Ekberg left his job at the Norton Company early–a move that saved his life. Many others at the Norton Company perished in the events that soon unfolded that fateful day.
