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

In 1987, extremely dangerous severe thunderstorms moving
southeast from Nebraska, invaded North Central Kansas
shortly after midnight.  Gusts around 100 mph tore
through Lake Waconda, heavily damaging around 50 camping
trailers and injuring 16 people at a state park
campground.  Beloit and Sylvan Grove were whip lashed by
gusts around 80 mph.  In 1918, lightning struck the wires
connecting 9 tons of dynamite that were readied for
detonation at an open pit mine 2 miles west of Virginia
Minnesota.  The resulting premature explosion caused the
mine to collapse, trapping 20 men of which 14 were
killed.  The town is located 63 miles north northwest of
Duluth.
