While we wouldn't say we're used to extreme weather in Oklahoma, it's not an unknown at this point. But on April 14, 1935, Oklahoma experienced a new kind of storm—rolling clouds of topsoil that looked like a black blizzard blew through the panhandle before working its way across the state. The Dust Bowl altered Oklahoma's trajectory for years, sending many families scrambling to different parts of the country to escape the environmental and economic turmoil.

What nickname was the storm on April 14, 1935 given?
