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

In 1991... the infamous Wichita Andover tornado roared
into history. The deadliest of 55 tornadoes to occur
that day... the vicious F5 twister possessed a track 46
miles long and reached one half mile wide. It killed
17... injured 225... and caused an estimated $300 million
damage... including $62 million at McConnell Air Force
base. Of the 17 deaths... 13 occurred at the Golden Spur
Mobile Home Park in Andover. A second F5 tornado that
ran roughshod across north central Oklahoma was even more
violent. Known as The Red Rock tornado... it possessed a
track 66 miles long and reached nearly 1 mile wide. The
behemoth leveled two farms and scoured pavement off a
Highway. A portable Doppler radar measured 257 to 268
mph winds inside the vortex which... at the time... were
the strongest winds ever measured on Earth. Fortunately
it remained in rural areas... for had it invaded a city or
town... the destruction and loss of life would no doubt
have been horrific.

&&

In 1989... the world's deadliest tornado went on a
rampage through the manikganj district of
bangladesh... where it killed an estimated 1,300 and
injured around 12,000!
