////////////////////////// MAY 30TH...HISTORIC WEATHER EVENTS ...1879... A major outbreak of severe weather occurred in Kansas and western Missouri. In Kansas, tornadoes killed eighteen persons at Delphos, and thirty persons at Irving. Two tornadoes struck the town of Irving within a few minutes time virtually wiping the small Kansas community off the map. The second tornado was perhaps two miles wide, and exhibited multiple vortices. (David Ludlum) (The Weather Channel) ...1948... A railroad bed acting as a dam gave way during a flood along the Columbia River destroying the town of Vanport OR. The nearly 19,000 residents escaped with little more than the clothes on their backs. (David Ludlum) Twenty carloads of glass were needed in Denver CO to replace that destroyed by a severe hailstorm. (The Weather Channel) ...1961... A thunderstorm in Buffalo Gap, Saskatchewan, dropped over 10 inches of rain in less than an hour, breaking a long drought. (NWS Louisville) ...1983... Unusually high temperatures throughout the western United States caused great runoff from snow pack in the Rocky Mountains. This caused flooding which washed out bridges and caused mudslides in Nevada. ...1985... The temperature in Oklahoma City reached a sizzling 104 degrees, making it the highest ever for so early in the season. Also, this marked the first time the temperature had reached the 100 degree mark in the month of May for the city. ...1986... Hanford, Washington hit a scorching 104 degrees, breaking the all-time record high temperature for May for eastern Washington. Yakima, Washington hit 102 degrees, a record high for the month of May for Yakima. Record heat also continued across the northern 1/2 of the country with records falling in Baltimore, Boise, Duluth, Marquette and Reno. Newark, New Jersey had its 4th day in a row over 90 degrees, making this a record breaking May heat wave for Newark. The previous record heat wave was from May 28-30, 1931. ...1991... 3 thunderstorms produced 5.65 inches of rain in a 3 hour period across New Marlboro and Sheffield, Massachusetts resulting in severe flooding. Many roads and several bridges were washed out eventually isolating the 2 towns. About 89 miles of road were damaged. Typical washouts ranged up to 8 feet deep and roads that were 25 feet wide were reduced to only 10 feet. Power outages were widespread and a state of emergency was declared. The flooding was the worst since 1955 for the area and total damage was estimated near 10 million dollars. ...1998... Most of the town of Spencer, South Dakota was destroyed by an F4 tornado. 6 people were killed, 150 were injured, and total damage was $18 million. ...2004... A large tornado outbreak struck the Ohio Valley, including an F3 twister that damaged 80 percent of Marengo, Indiana and resulted in one fatality. [NWS Louisville]
