... 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
