HISTORICAL WEATHER AND CLIMATE FACTS FOR TODAY

---------------------------
OCTOBER 1ST
HISTORIC WEATHER EVENTS
...1752...
The second severe hurricane in two weeks hit the Carolinas. The Onslow
County Courthouse was destroyed along with all its records, and Beacon
Island disappeared. (David Ludlum)
...1893...
The second great hurricane of the 1893 season hit the Mississippi Delta
Region drowning more than 1000 persons. (David Ludlum)
...1977...
Thunderstorms brought heavy rains and severe weather to eastern Kentucky. A pair 
of tornados struck Owsley and Laurel counties...causing hundreds of thousands of 
dollars in crop and property damage to Owsley county alone...while the tornado 
which struck in Laurel county left 16 people injured. In addition to the severe 
weather...as much as 8 inches of rain fell over parts of eastern Kentucky...with 
a record setting one day rainfall total for October 1st of 4.78 inches falling 
at the London-Corbin airport.

The October rains were the second round of such adverse weather in 1977. Earlier 
in the year major flooding occurred throughout parts of eastern Kentucky when 
over 15 inches of rain fell over a 3 day period in April. These floods were the 
impetus for the NWS to locate an office in eastern Kentucky. Breathitt county 
was selected as a central location and the decision was made to locate the radar 
and the NWS office at Jackson. Construction began in late 1979 and the office 
was officially opened on January 1st 1981. (NWS Jackson)
...1987...
A blast of cold arctic air hit the north central U.S. An afternoon
thunderstorm slickened the streets of Duluth MN with hail and snow, and
later in the afternoon, strong northerly winds reached 70 mph. Unseasonably
warm weather continued in the Pacific northwest. Afternoon highs of 90
degrees at Olympia WA, 92 degrees at Portland OR, and 89 degrees at Seattle
WA, were records for the month of October. For Seattle WA it marked the
twenty- first daily record high for the year, a record total in itself.
(The National Weather Summary)
...1988...
Afternoon and evening thunderstorms produced severe weather across central
Oklahoma and the eastern half of Texas. Thunderstorms in Texas produced
softball size hail northwest of Nocona, and baseball size hail at Troy and
Park Springs. (The National Weather Summary) (Storm Data)
...1989...
Thunderstorms produced severe weather in the southeastern U.S. through the
daytime and evening hours. Severe thunderstorms spawned eleven tornadoes,
with seven of those tornadoes in Georgia. A tornado southwest of Moultrie
GA killed two persons and injured a dozen others. Tornadoes also injured
one person north of Graceville FL, and two persons at Bartow GA. (Storm
Data) (The National Weather Summary)
