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

In 1969, hurricane Camille made landfall on the
Mississippi coast. She was the second most intense
hurricane to strike the United States with a central
pressure of 26.84 inches. Maximum sustained winds were
estimated at 200 mph. She produced a storm surge of
nearly 25 feet. Camille killed 259 of which 113 died
from the formidable flash flooding in Virginia and West
Virginia that resulted from 12 to 20 inches of rain. She
caused $1.42 billion damage which, at the time, made her
the 2nd costliest hurricane. Adjusting for inflation,
this would equate to around $8.5 billion. Camille's
devastation inspired the implementation of the
Saffir-Simpson hurricane wind scale.


In 1915, a hurricane hit Galveston Texas with winds up
to 120 mph and a 12 foot storm surge. In all, 275 people
died, of which 42 lived on Galveston Island. Most of the
deaths were a result of drowning. Of the 250 homes built
outside the seawall, only 10 percent were left standing.
