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

In 1987, severe thunderstorms invaded the Northern Plains
and Upper Great Lakes from Minnesota to Northern Lower
Michigan.  Parts of Central Wisconsin were whipped by 80
to 90 mph winds.  The town of Mosinee was smacked by an
87 mph gust.  Severe thunderstorm winds capsized 26 boats
on Grand Traverse Bay where 2 women drowned.  The
thunderstorms were also prolific rain producers as 7 to 9
inches swamped much of Southern Minnesota.  In Northwest
Nebraska, Cherry County was pelted with golf ball sized
hail that accumulated to a 1 foot depth.

&&

In 1996, severe thunderstorms raked Mt.  Rushmore with
hail up to 2 inches in diameter and winds around 100 mph.
There were between 300 and 500 people outside when the
extremely powerful thunderstorms began.  Considering the
magnitude of the event, it`s surprising only 15 were
injured.
