...1915...
A hurricane hit Galveston TX with wind gusts to 120 mph and a twelve foot
storm surge. The storm claimed 275 lives, including forty-two on Galveston

seawall (which was constructed after the catastrophic hurricane of 1900),
just ten percent were left standing. (The Weather Channel)
...1969...
Camille, the second worst hurricane in U.S. history, smashed into the
Mississippi coast. Winds gusted to 172 mph at Main Pass Block LA, and to
190 mph near Bay Saint Louis MS. The hurricane claimed 256 lives, and
caused 1.3 billion dollars damage. Several ocean going ships were carried
over seven miles inland by the hurricane. The hurricane produced winds to
200 mph, and a storm surge of 24.6 feet. Complete destruction occurred in
some coastal areas near the eye of the hurricane. (David Ludlum) (The
Weather Channel)
...1987...
Evening thunderstorms produced severe weather in the Northern and Central
Plains Region. One thunderstorm spawned a tornado near Fairbury NE, along
