Chaos struck Central Illinois on Nov. 17, 2013, as more than a dozen twisters descended from the sky. Tazewell County was hit hardest statewide, as a half-mile vortex with 190-mile-per-hour winds ripped through the city of Washington. Entire neighborhoods in Washington were leveled, with some homes swept clean from their foundations. Overall, more than a 1,000 homes and businesses were flattened or severely damaged. Loss of life was limited to three tornado-related deaths, but the physical and psychological scars are just now starting to heal. On the one-year anniversary, WTVP will premiere a new special that follows recovery efforts throughout the past year, looks at the lessons learned in the aftermath of the storm and reveals the struggles and triumphs of a community trying to rebuild.

Pop crooner Bobby Vinton hosts his first "My Music" program, in this all-new archival clip special devoted to the golden pop years from 1960-1963.
