TEMPERATURE FOR THE MONTH OF OCTOBER WHEN THE MERCURY
SOARED TO 97 DEGREES.  THE PREVIOUS RECORD HIGH
TEMPERATURE FOR OCTOBER IN WICHITA HAD BEEN 95 DEGREES
SET ON OCTOBER 8TH...1979.  IN 2010...TROPICAL STORM
NICOLE FINALLY VACATED THE MID-ATLANTIC COAST BUT NOT
UNTIL INUNDATING MUCH OF THE REGION WITH 1 TO NEARLY 2
FEET OF RAIN IN A 5 DAY PERIOD.  HARDEST HIT WERE THE
COASTS OF NORTH CAROLINA AND VIRGINIA...WHERE 13 TO
NEARLY 23 INCHES OF RAIN CAUSED HORRIFIC FLOODING THAT
CLAIMED 6 LIVES...5 IN NORTH CAROLINA AND 1 IN
PENNSYLVANIA.  FLOODING WAS SO DEEP THAT CARS ACTUALLY
FLOATED ATOP EACH OTHER.  WILMINGTON NORTH CAROLINA
`RAINED SUPREME` BY MEASURING A STAGGERING 22.54 INCHES
FROM SEPTEMBER 26TH TO THE 30TH.  HOWEVER...NICOLE DIED A
SLOW DEATH AS SHE WOULD DUMP 6 TO 10 INCHES OF RAIN ON
NEW YORK CITY AND BOSTON.

&&

IN 1752...THE SECOND SEVERE HURRICANE IN TWO WEEKS
STRUCK THE CAROLINAS.  THE STORM DESTROYED THE ONSLOW
COUNTY COURTHOUSE AND ALL THE RECORDS WERE DESTROYED.
BEACON ISLAND COMPLETELY DISAPPEARED.  SOME PEOPLE BLAMED
THE DISASTER ON THE CHANGE FROM THE JULIAN TO GREGORIAN
CALENDAR IN EARLY SEPTEMBER.
