@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@ 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.
