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

November 23rd and 24th have proven to be notorious for
tornadoes. In 1992... a three day outbreak that ravaged
parts of 12 states finally ended... but not without making
more history. An F3 tornado raced a 160 mile Marathon
across eastern North Carolina... from about 20 miles south
of Raleigh to Elizabeth City. Remarkably there were no
fatalities... but 44 were injured with close to $5 million
damage. In 2001... a two day outbreak of 66 tornadoes
began across the southeastern United States. Of this
total... 8 struck on the 23rd in northwest Arkansas and
southwest Missouri. The most serious was an F2 that
struck extreme northwest Arkansas... about 20 miles
southeast of Fayetteville. The twister had a track 31
miles long... and reached nearly one third of a mile wide.
The tornado killed 1... injured 4 and caused $2 million
damage. This outbreak continued throughout the night and
most of the 24th. In 2004... a horrific outbreak of 93
tornadoes invaded the deep south from Texas to
Alabama... of which 48 occurred on the 23rd. The worst
tornado of the outbreak was an F4 that roared through La
Salle Parish in central Louisiana... where one was
killed... 20 injured... 90 dwellings were heavily damaged
or destroyed... and a High School sustained considerable
roof damage. One third of the small town of Olla
Louisiana was destroyed... and one woman was killed when
her home was leveled.

&&

In 1992... super typhoon Gay produced 120 mph gusts in
Guam. When it was most intense... it had estimated
sustained winds around 185 mph with gusts up to 225 mph
when it tore through an island 1000 miles southeast of
Guam.
