... On this date in weather history...
In 1998... the stalled remnants of Tropical Storm Charley gave del Rio Texas the drenching of a lifetime... when a staggering 17.03 inches overwhelmed the city. The historic calendar day rainfall... which inundated the previous record by a mind numbing 9.43 inches... caused flash flooding of the San Felipe creek. The flooding was so severe that around 2,000 dwellings were destroyed. Most of the residences were swept from their foundations when a Natural Dam on the creek failed. This unleashed a flood wave across del Rio that left around two thirds of the city underwater. In all... 13 drowned... 150 were injured... as well as around $50 million in damage. Eight south Texas counties were declared disaster areas. Prior to the disaster... the daily rainfall record for del Rio was 7.60 inches measured on October 4th... 1969. In 1906 Kansas City received 6 inches of rain from an early morning thunderstorm... nearly 3 inches of which fell in just 30 minutes!
In 1933... the Chesapeake-Potomac hurricane struck the North Carolina and Virginia coasts before hitting the Washington D.C. Metro area. The hurricane briefly reached category 4 status with gusts around 140 mph but weakened considerably to category 1 as it crossed the East Coast. Hardest hit was Virginia where the storm center passed directly over Norfolk. Damage totaled
