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

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 1933, three short lived, but strong,
tornadoes crossed parts of Harper, Sumner and Kingman
counties. Fortunately, they remained in rural areas. An
F3 that touched down in northeast Harper County destroyed
2 farms about 5 miles northeast of Danville. The 2nd, an
F2, destroyed 2 farms between 3 and 6 miles southwest of
Norwich while the 2nd F2 destroyed 5 small homes 18 miles
south of Wichita.


In 1969, 'never say die' Camille produced an incredible
cloud burst in Virginia. Intense thunderstorms unleashed
10 or more inches of rain through central Virginia,
training over an area around 100 miles long but 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.
