Historical Weather And Climate Facts For Today
JANUARY 29TH
HISTORICAL WEATHER FACTS
...1780...
On the coldest morning of a severe winter the mercury dipped to 16 degrees
below zero at New York City, and reached 20 degrees below zero at Hartford
CT. New York Harbor was frozen for five weeks, allowing a heavy cannon to
be taken across the ice to fortify the British on Staten Island. (The
Weather Channel)
...1921...
A small but intense windstorm resulted in the "Great Olympic Blowdown" in
the Pacific Northwest. Hurricane force winds, funneled along the mountains,
downed vast expanses of Douglas fir trees, and the storm destroyed eight
billion board feet of timber. Winds at North Head WA gusted to 113 mph.
(David Ludlum)
...1983...
A series of Pacific coast storms finally came to an end. The storms,
attributed in part to the ocean current, "El Nino", produced ocean swells
15 to 20 feet high which ravaged the beaches of southern California. Much
of the damage was to homes of movies stars in the exclusive Malibu Colony.
