@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@
JUNE 27TH...HISTORIC WEATHER EVENTS
...1808...
At Newbury, Massachusetts, a violent tornado did extensive damage.
...1881...
A "wind rush" at Washington, DC damaged the city hall and the Masonic Temple.
...1901...
There was a rain of fish from the sky at Tiller's Ferry. Hundreds of fish
were swimming between cotton rows after a heavy shower. (David Ludlum)
...1915...
The temperature at Fort Yukon AK soared to 100 degrees to establish a state
record. (The Weather Channel)
...1957...
Hurricane Audrey smashed ashore at Cameron LA drowning 390 persons in the
storm tide, and causing 150 million dollars damage in Texas, Louisiana and
Mississippi. Audrey left only a brick courthouse and a cement-block
icehouse standing at Cameron, and when the waters settled in the town of
Crede, only four buildings remained. The powerful winds of Audrey tossed a
fishing boat weighing 78 tons onto an off-shore drilling platform. Winds
along the coast gusted to 105 mph, and oil rigs off the Louisiana coast
reported wind gusts to 180 mph. A storm surge greater than twelve feet
inundated the Louisiana coast as much as 25 miles inland. It was the
deadliest June hurricane of record for the U.S. (David Ludlum) (The Weather
Channel)
...1994...
The big heat continued in the southwestern U.S.  Lakewood, New Mexico hit a 
scorching 119 degrees to set a new all-time state record.  Afternoon highs of 
116 degrees at Midland, Texas, 114 at Lubbock, Texas and Roswell, new Mexico, 
and 113 at El Paso, Texas set new all-time records for those locations.  The 
mesonet station 4 miles south of Tipton, Oklahoma hit 120 degrees, to tie the 
state record high temperature.
