The town of Indianola TX was completely destroyed by a hurricane, and never
rebuilt. (David Ludlum)
The "big blow up" of forest fires finally came to an end in Idaho. A record
dry August fueled 1736 fires which burned three million acres destroying
six billion board feet of timber. The fires claimed the lives of 85
persons, 78 of which were fire fighters, and consumed the entire town of
Wallace. The smoke spread a third of the way around the world producing
some dark days in the U.S. and Canada. The forest fires prompted federal
fire protection laws. (David Ludlum)
Half a dozen cities in the Central Plains Region reported record high
temperatures for the date, including Pueblo CO with a reading of 102
degrees, and Goodland KS with a high of 104 degrees. Hill City KS reached
106 degrees. (The National Weather Summary)
Sheridan WY reported a record hot temperature reading of 100 degrees.
Evening thunderstorms produced golf ball size hail near Fortuna ND, and
wind gusts to 70 mph near Webster SD. (The National Weather Summary) (Storm
Early morning thunderstorms produced heavy rain in southeast Kansas and
northeastern Oklahoma, with up to six inches reported around Tulsa OK. Some
roads in the Tulsa area were closed by water 10 to 12 feet deep. Evening

Kansas. Thunderstorms produced winds gusts to 75 mph in Major County OK,
and hail two inches in diameter at Jennings KS. (The National Weather
