Historical Weather And Climate Facts For Today

//////////////////////////
JUNE 23RD...HISTORIC WEATHER EVENTS
...1902...
The temperature at Volcano Springs CA soared to 129 degrees to set a June
record for the U.S. (Sandra and TI Richard Sanders)
...1944...
Four tornadoes killed 153 persons and caused five million dollars damage in
Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Maryland. The tornadoes formed during the
evening and moved southeast along parallel paths flattening everything in
their way. The town of Shinnston WV was leveled, and was left with the
majority of the casualities. Until that time it was believed that damaging
tornadoes did not travel across mountainous terrain. (David Ludlum)
...1957...
A few miles west of Fort Stockton TX, softball size hail injured 21 persons
unable to find shelter, mostly farm laborers. Some livestock were killed.
