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

In 1879, a major tornado outbreak occurred from north central
Kansas into southeast Nebraska. Tornadoes in Kansas killed 18
persons at Delphos and claimed 30 lives at Irving where two
twisters struck within minutes of one another, reducing the small
community to rubble. The second tornado was perhaps two miles wide
and exhibited multiple vortices.

In 1935, one of the worst weather related disasters hit the tri state
area. It was known as the great flood of 1935. The event began during
the evening when thunderstorms produced an almost unbelievable amount
of rain in Kit Carson and Yuma counties. Unofficial rainfall observers
reported between 18 and 24 inches of rain during the evening. The rain
drained into the arikaree and republican rivers which proceeded to
rapidly flood. A total of 113 lives were lost, mostly in Colorado
and Nebraska, when flood waters arrived at night. Over twenty thousand
head of cattle were killed. Several hundred miles of highways and
railroads were destroyed.
