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

In 1951, a massive hailstorm occurred from Wallace to
Kearney County in Kansas.  The hail caused $6 million
damage to crops.  In 1953, an F4 tornado with a track 20
miles long and around one third of a mile wide, tore
through Morton and Emmons counties of South Central North
Dakota.  The twister killed 2 and injured 20.  One of the
deaths occurred in Fort Rice, where a Catholic Church was
leveled.  Its pews were jammed 4 feet into the ground!
