TODAY Version 3.7 06/24/94 Copyright 1986, 1994 By Patrick Kincaid

Today is Wednesday May 26, 2010.
This is the 146th day of the year, there are 219 days left.

On this day...
In 1771 A famous Virginia flood occurred as heavy rains in the
mountains brought all rivers in the state to record high
levels.
In 1917 A tornado touched down near Louisiana MO about noon
and remained on the ground for a distance of 293 miles,
finally lifting seven hours and twenty minutes later in
eastern Jennings County IN. The twister cut a swath of
destruction two and a half miles wide through Mattoon IL.
There were 101 persons killed in the tornado, including
53 at Mattoon, and 38 at Charleston IL. Damage from the
storm totalled 2.5 million dollars. Debris was carried
50 miles in some cases.
In 1984 Thunderstorms during the late evening and early morning
hours produced 6 to 13 inches of rain at Tulsa OK in six
hours (8.63 inches at the airport). Flooding claimed 14
lives and caused 90 million dollars property damage.
4600 cars, 743 houses, and 387 apartments were destroyed
or severely damaged in the flood.
In 1987 Thunderstorms in southwest Iowa spawned five tornadoes
and produced up to ten inches of rain. Seven inches of
rain at Red Oak forced evacuation of nearly 100 persons
from the town. Record flooding took place in southwest
Iowa the last twelve days of May as up to 17 inches of
rain drenched the area. Total damage to crops and
property was estimated at 16 million dollars.
In 1988 There was "frost on the roses" in the Upper Ohio Valley
and the Central Appalachian Mountain Region. Thirteen
cities reported record low temperatures for the date,
including Youngstown OH with a reading of 30 degrees.
Evening thunderstorms in North Dakota produced wind gusts
to 75 mph at Jamestown.
In 1989 Thunderstorms produced large hail in eastern Oklahoma
during the pre-dawn hours, and again during the evening
and night. Hail two inches in diameter was reported near
Prague, and thunderstorm winds gusted to 70 mph near
Kenefic.
In 1990 Thunderstorms produced severe weather from eastern
Colorado to western Arkansas and northeastern Texas.
Severe thunderstorms spawned three tornadoes, and there
were eighty-eight reports of large hail or damaging
winnds. Evening thunderstorms over central Oklahoma
spawned strong tornadoes east of Hinton and east of
Binger, produced hail three inches in diameter at Minco,
and produced wind gusts to 85 mph at Blanchard.
In 2001 A tornado took the roof off of a retirement home in
Fort Wayne, Indiana...forcing the residents to a nearby
shelter.
