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

In 1936, Salina tied their all time record high for the
month of July when the city was torched by a temperature
of 116 degrees. The record had been set just 6 days
earlier on July 18th. Salina's all-time record high is
118 degrees set on August 13th, 1936. In comparison, in
1942, Las Vegas had set their all time record high of 117
degrees, a record that would be tied on July 19, 2005.
In 1979, Claudette was a weak tropical storm, but do not
say that to residents of Alvin Texas. A phenomenal 43
inches of rain inundated the Houston suburb to set the
all time 24 hour rainfall record for the United States.
This staggering total is just 10.82 inches shy of the all
time annual rainfall record for Wichita which is 53.82
inches set in 2008.

Here is some truly 'shocking' news that you should find
equally 'revolting'. In 1947, a lightning Bolt
reportedly yielding 345,000 amps of electricity struck
Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. It garnered the greatest
headlines in the department of 'current' events.
