In 1898, eastern Wisconsin experienced their worst
snowstorm on record. Racine was buried under 2.5 feet of
snow and drifts around Milwaukee measured 15 feet. In
1953, a snowstorm roaring through Nebraska South Dakota
Iowa and Minnesota produced 10 foot drifts that derailed
trains.


In 2016, super typhoon Winston made landfall in the
island nation of Fiji with satellite estimated 10-minute
sustained winds as high as 145 mph and 1-minute sustained
speeds as high as 180 mph. Winston was the 11th South
Pacific tropical cyclone to join the "category 5
fraternity" and the first such typhoon to hit Fiji.
Possessing a central pressure that was as low as 915 mb
(27.02 inches in mercury) Winston was, in terms of
central pressure, the 7th most powerful typhoon (along
with 5 other typhoons) to occur in the South Pacific
ocean since reliable records began in 1970. There were
44 confirmed fatalities, an estimated $500 million damage
and communications were temporarily lost on 6 islands; a
few of which were isolated for 2 days.
