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

In 1930... a violent tornado struck Barton and Rice
counties. Passing along the south side of
Ellinwood... the tornado possessed a path 27 miles
long... one quarter mile wide... and caused $300,000
damage. In 1995... severe thunderstorms erupted over
North Texas and Oklahoma. The Dallas Fort Worth
metroplex was hit especially hard where hail reached the
size of baseballs. Around 400 people were injured... most
of whom were attending a carnival in ft. Worth. The
hail damaged 70 aircraft at Dallas Fort Worth
Airport... among them a British airways d c 10 that was
