In the early morning hours of April 4, 1981, a fatal F4, anticyclonic tornado struck the Wisconsin city of West Bend. It killed 3 people, and injured another 53. The tornado was largely unexpected and the storm that produced it did not display features of a typical severe storm. Because of this, the National Weather Service issued only a Severe Thunderstorm Warning prior to the West Bend Tornado, causing local law enforcement to not sound the tornado sirens in time for residents to take shelter.
