Historical Weather And Climate Facts For Today
SEPTEMBER 21ST
HISTORIC WEATHER EVENTS
...1588...
After an unsuccessful battle with the English fleet, the Spanish Armada 
encountered strong storms and high winds off the coast of Ireland on its 
way back to Spain. 26 ships are believed to have been lost. The remaining 
ships limped back to Spain defeated and demoralized, ending the reign of 
the once unbeatable Spanish Armada. (NWS Louisville)
...1894...
A heavy chicken house, sixteen by sixteen feet in area, was picked up by a
tornado and wedged between two trees. The hens were found the next day
sitting on their eggs in the chicken house, with no windows broken, as
though nothing had happened. (The Weather Channel)
...1938...
A great hurricane smashed into Long Island and bisected New England causing
a massive forest blowdown and widespread flooding. Winds gusted to 186 mph
at Blue Hill MA, and a storm surge of nearly thirty feet caused extensive
flooding along the coast of Rhode Island. The hurricane killed 600 persons
and caused 500 million dollars damage. The hurricane, which lasted twelve
days, destroyed 275 million trees. Hardest hit were Massachusetts,
Connecticut, Rhode Island and Long Island NY. The "Long Island Express"
produced gargantuan waves with its 150 mph winds, waves which smashed
against the New England shore with such force that earthquake-recording
machines on the Pacific coast clearly showed the shock of each wave. (David
Ludlum) (The Weather Channel)
...1979...
Louisville's wettest September day, with 4.30 inches of rain. (NWS Louisville)
...1954...
The temperature at Deeth NV soared from a morning low of 12 degrees to a

Channel)
...1987...
Tropical Storm Emily, which formed in the Carribean the previous afternoon,
caused considerable damage to the banana industry of Saint Vincent in the
Windward Islands. Unseasonably hot weather continued in Florida and the
western U.S. Redding CA and Red Bluff CA, with record highs of 108 degrees,
tied for honors as the hot spot in the nation. (The National Weather
Summary)
...1988...
Thunderstorms produced high winds and locally heavy rain in the
southwestern U.S. One thunderstorm in west Texas produced wind gusts to 86
mph at Dell City completely destroying an airport hangar. A Cessna 150
aircraft housed within the hangar was flipped over and snapped in two.
Thunderstorms produced large hail in east central Utah, while snow
blanketed some of the higher elevations of the state. (The National Weather
Summary) (Storm Data)
...1989...
Hurricane Hugo slammed into the South Carolina coast about 11 PM, making
landfall near Sullivans Island. Hurricane Hugo was directly responsible for
thirteen deaths, and indirectly responsible for twenty-two others. A total
of 420 persons were injured in the hurricane, and damage was estimated at
eight billion dollars, including two billion dollars damage to crops.
Sustained winds reached 85 mph at Folly Beach SC, with wind gusts as high
was 138 mph. Wind gusts reached 98 mph at Charleston, and 109 mph at Shaw
AFB. The biggest storm surge occurred in the McClellanville and Bulls Bay
area of Charleston County, with a storm surge of 20.2 feet reported at
Seewee Bay. Shrimp boats were found one half mile inland at McClellanville.
