...On this date in weather history...
In 1988...monstrous severe thunderstorms along a cold front bombarded parts of north central Oklahoma with softball sized hail near Noble and Enterprise and baseball sized hail at Lequire and Kinta. Noble was also hit by an F1 tornado that destroyed a Mobile home where one person was injured.
In 1999...the remnants of Hurricane Gert merged with an extra-tropical cyclone to produce a couple of rogue waves that reached horrific heights of 50 to 60 feet as they slammed onto the Southern Shores of Newfoundland. The waves struck St. Brides with such force that a Concrete wharf crumbled...enabling the waves to rush into a Harbor. Five boats were destroyed and 45 others were damaged. Three people were swept into The Harbor of which one was hospitalized. The wharf required $2 million in repairs and forced its closure.
