... On this date in weather history...

In 1933... three short lived... but strong... tornadoes
moved across parts of Harper... Sumner and Kingman
counties. Fortunately they remained in rural areas. In
1989... early morning thunderstorms produced heavy rain in
southeast Kansas and northeast Oklahoma... with 5.37
inches measured at the Tulsa weather office. Some roads
in the Tulsa area were closed by water 10 to 12 feet
deep. Evening thunderstorms produced gusts around 75 mph
in Major County Oklahoma... and 2 inch diameter hail in
Jennings Kansas.

&&

In 1969... 'never say die' Camille unleashed a colossal
cloud burst in Virginia. Intense thunderstorms unleashed
10 or more inches of rain through central
Virginia... training over an area 100 miles long and only
25 miles wide.Hardest hit was Nelson County where
torrential rains inundated the area with a staggering 27
to 30 inches in about 3 hours! The resulting flash floods
and landslides killed 151... and caused around $500
million damage.
