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

In 1989... afternoon and evening severe thunderstorms
struck the northern and Central Plains from North Dakota
to Kansas. The severe thunderstorms that tore through
north central Kansas walloped Wilson Dam with gusts
around 105 mph between 9 and 10 PM. In 1883... a violent
F5 tornado ravaged Rochester Minnesota. The monstrous
vortex had a track 25 miles long... and nearly reached 1
mile wide. The tempest killed 37... injured around
200... and caused around $700,000 damage. The tremendous
roar gave many people sufficient warning to seek shelter.
Of the 40 farms in Dodge County... 10 were leveled. Many
injuries were very serious and it is likely others
perished in the disaster. The Rochester tornado was the
impetus for the creation of the Mayo clinic.


In 2007... the atmospheric sauna ran full throttle across
the southeast United States as Raleigh/Durham North
Carolina set an all time record high of 105 degrees.
