... 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.
