The town of Taylor, in southeastern Texas, was deluged with 2.4 inches of
rain in fifteen minutes. (The Weather Channel)
The temperature at Kansas City MO soared to 95 degrees to establish a
record for the month of April. Four days earlier the afternoon high in
Kansas City was 44 degrees, following a record cold morning low of 34
degrees. (The Weather Channel) (The Kansas City Weather Almanac)
A tornado, as much as 100 yards in width, touched down south of Shannon MS.
The tornado destroyed twenty-seven homes along its eighteen mile path,
killing three persons. Asphalt was torn from Highway 45 and thrown hundreds
of yards away. Little rain or snow accompanied the tornado, so it was
visible for miles. (The Weather Channel)
