///////////////////////////
JULY 28TH...HISTORIC WEATHER EVENTS
...1819...
A small but intense hurricane passed over Bay Saint Louis MS. The hurricane
was considered the worst in fifty years. Few houses were left standing
either at Bay Saint Louis or at Pass Christian, and much of the Mississippi
coast was desolate following the storm. A U.S. cutter was lost along with
its thirty-nine crew members. The storm struck the same area that was hit
150 years later by Hurricane Camille. (David Ludlum)
...1930...
The temperature at Greensburg KY soared to 114 degrees to set a state
record. (The Weather Channel)
...1934...
The temperature at Grofino ID climbed to 118 degrees to establish a record
for Idaho. (The Weather Channel)
...1952...
A severe storm with hail up to an inch and a half in diameter broke
windows, ruined roofs, and stripped trees of leaves near Benson AZ. The
temperature dropped to 37 degrees, as hail was three to four inches deep,
with drifts 46 inches high. (The Weather Channel)
...1986...
Severe thunderstorms moving out of South Dakota across Iowa produce high
winds which derailed eighteen piggyback trailer cars of a westbound freight
train near Boone IA. Sixteen of the cars fell 187 feet into the Des Moines
River. The thunderstorms also spawned a number of tornadoes, including one
which caused twenty-five to fifty million dollars damage at Sloan, near
Sioux City IA. (Storm Data)
...1987...
Thunderstorms in Nevada produced wind gusts to 70 mph at Searchlight,
reducing visibilities to near zero in blowing dust and sand. Thunderstorms
in Montana drenched Lonesome Lake with 3.78 inches of rain. (The National
Weather Summary)
...1988...
Thunderstorms drenched Wilmington NC with 3.33 inches of rain, bringing
their monthly total 14.46 inches. Seven cities in Michigan and Minnesota
reported record high temperatures for the date. Marquette MI hit 99
degrees, and the record high of 94 degrees at Flint MI was their tenth of
the month. (The National Weather Summary)
...1989...
Afternoon thunderstorms produced large hail and damaging winds in
Massachusetts. Early evening thunderstorms over Florida produced wind gusts
to 68 mph at Fort Myers, and evening thunder-storms in South Dakota
produced nearly two inches of rain in twenty minutes at Pierpoint. (The
National Weather Summary) (Storm Data)
