... 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. Details regarding
damage are unknown. In 1883, a violent F5 tornado
ravaged Rochester Minnesota. The massive 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.
