Casualties and impact


The 1966 Candlestick Park tornado may have remained on the ground for 4 hours and 30 minutes or longer; however, it is not clear whether the storm produced a single tornado or a tornado family. If verified as one tornado, the 1966 Candlestick Park tornado would retain the record for the longest-duration tornado in United States history.
