Tornado activity: Orestes-area historical tornado activity is slightly above Indiana state average. It is 122% greater than the overall U.S. average. [1]

Date: April 17, 1922, Indiana Counties: Warren, Fatalities: 11, Injuries: 35, Time: 3:00pm

Though this event began in Illinois, Hedrick, Indiana was hardest hit as farms and houses were leveled and 11 deaths took place. The tornado displayed rapid and unexpected growth as it approached the village. The tornado then dissipated just three miles later northeast of the town. [2]

Date : April 17, 1922, Indiana Counties: Madison, Delaware, Blackford, Fatalities: 3, Time: 6:00pm

This storm moved from Orestes to northeast of Wheeling. Several homes in Madison and Delaware counties were flattened, resulting in three fatalities. A post card from one of the homes near Orestes was later found in Mount Cory, Ohio, 124 miles away, with only a torn corner. [2]
