#OTD in 1999, Hurricane Irene caused winds gust to 30 mph on the beaches, as it passed about 60 miles offshore. Rainfall up to 5 inches caused flooding in Georgetown and Horry counties, with the worst flooding reported from Cherry Grove area to Surfside Beach. #scwxhistory

#OTD (10-16) in 1998: Yocemento, KS F3 #Tornado! 10 homes were damaged/destroyed. A modular home on a concrete slab was hit & debris was carried 1/2 mile. Driver of a tractor-trailer on I-70 was injured when the truck was flipped over. https://t.co/1dHvWUTKpQ #kswx #wxhistory

Il y a 32 ans, les 15 & 16 octobre 1987, la #Bretagne et la #Normandie subissaient l'une des plus violentes #tempêtes de l'Histoire. Les #vents, dignes d'un #ouragan de catégorie 3/5 (d’où son nom « Ouragan de 1987 » donné par les médias) ont atteint 216 km/h à la Pointe du Raz !

#OTD in 1988: An F2 tornado carved a 6-mile long path through north-central #Indiana. The slow-moving tornado passed 1.5 miles north of Nappanee, just 300 yards north of a high school, and shortly after that moved through a subdivision where 11 homes were damaged. #wxhistory

111 years ago today: Walking across the Ohio River was actually possible. Due to a 2 month drought, navigation along Ohio River was suspended. According to records, the river hit a record low stage of 2 inches in Wheeling in Oct 1908. Picture from: Ohio County Public Library.

Three years ago today, I was surveying Hurricane #Matthew storm surge damage in Horry and Georgetown County with Emergency Managers, @SCEMD, and @NHC_Atlantic. The power of water is incredible. It’s one thing to see it on TV. It’s another to walk it and see it in person.

20 years ago today, Irene moved across the Florida Keys producing heavy rainfall, strong winds and high waves. The rainfall established daily records on October 14th & 15th in #KeyWest. A gust of 102 mph was reported in #BigPineKey. #flwx #FloridaKeys #hurricanehistory #OTD

#OTD in 1954, Hurricane Hazel made landfall near the North Carolina/South Carolina border, slightly northeast of Myrtle Beach. The maximum wind speeds at landfall were estimated at 130 mph (based on pressure), a Category 4 on the Saffir-Simpson scale. #scwxhistory
