...ON THIS DATE IN WEATHER HISTORY...

In 1926, a hurricane came inland near Daytona Beach
Florida, causing $2.5 million damage in Eastern Florida
including Jacksonville.  In 1943, on a whim, and flying a
single engine plane, Lieutenant Ralph O`Hare and Colonel
Duckworth were the first to fly into a hurricane.  It
started regular Air Force reconnaissance flights into
hurricanes.  Incidently, Ralph O`Hare is not the namesake
for O`Hare International Airport, which, in 1949, was
named in honor of Edward O`Hare, the Navy`s first Flying
Ace and Medal of Honor Recipient in World War II.
