... On this date in weather history...

In 1892, an F4 tornado with a track 55 miles long and
nearly one half mile wide barreled across Barber, Harper
and Sumner counties. The tornado killed 17, injured 100,
and caused around $300,000 damage. Hardest hit was
Wellington, where 12 people were killed and around 100
homes and 30 businesses were destroyed. In 1997, a
violent F5 tornado tore through Jarrell Texas.Located
38 miles north of Austin, Jarrell was devastated by the
massive 3/4 mile wide multi-vortex tornado that had a
track only 5 miles long. Many homes and businesses were
leveled with several swept from their foundations. There
were 27 deaths and 12 injuries. It was by far the most
violent of an outbreak of 20 tornadoes that tore through
central Texas that afternoon and evening. It would be
the last F5 tornado to occur in the Lone Star state
before the Enhanced Fujita scale was implemented on
February 1st, 2007.


In 1896, 10 strong and violent tornadoes struck the mid
Mississippi Valley in Missouri and Illinois. The
deadliest was a violent F4 that tore through St. Louis.
Beginning 6 miles west of downtown, the vortex had a
track 12 miles long and one half mile wide. Killing 255,
injuring 1,000, and causing $10 million damage, it was
the deadliest tornado on record at the time and is the
3rd deadliest to this day. Of the 255 fatalities, 137
were in St. Louis. A few houses vanished. The 36 acre
Lafayette Park was turned into a wasteland of stripped
trees and stumps. On the east end of the Eads bridge in
St. Louis, a 2 inch by 10 inch plank was driven through
a wrought Iron plate five sixteenths of an inch thick!
