A weather diary kept by George Washington recorded that the center of a

eastern North Carolina and Virginia before moving into the Central
Appalachians. Norfolk VA reported houses destroyed, trees uprooted, and
crops leveled to the ground. (David Ludlum)
...1898...
A two hour thunderstorm deluged Atlanta GA with 4.32 inches of rain. More
than a foot of water flooded Union Depot. Many street car motors burned out
while trying to run through flooded streets. It grew so dark before the
afternoon storm that gas lights were needed. (The Weather Channel)
...1923...
Sheridan WY was drenched with 4.41 inches of rain, an all-time 24 hour
record for that location. Associated flooding washed out 20 miles of
railroad track. (22nd-23rd) (The Weather Channel)
...1987...
Thunderstorms produced a record ten inches of rain in six and a half hours
at Minneapolis MN, including 5.26 inches in two hours. Flash flooding
claimed two lives and caused 21.3 million dollars damage. Streets in
Minneapolis became rushing rivers, parking lots became lakes, and storm
sewers spouted like geysers. A tornado hit Maple Grove MN causing five
million dollars damage. Baseball size hail was reported at Olivia MN. (The
National Weather Summary) (Storm Data)
...1988...
Thunderstorms produced severe weather in Lower Michigan and northern Ohio,

inches of rain, following six and a half inches the previous day. (The
