AUGUST 10TH, 1856 A hurricane's 5 ft. storm tide drowns 140 vacationers at Isle Derniere (Last Island) off the Louisiana coast. In 1943, on the same day, lightning kills six soldiers on a drill field at Fort Belvoir, VA.
 
AUGUST 10TH, 1980 Hurricane Allen came ashore above Brownsville TX dropping fifteen inches of rain near San Antonio, and up to 20 inches in the Lower Rio Grande Valley. Tidal flooding occurred along the South Texas coast. Hurricane Allen packed winds to 150 mph, and also spawned twenty-nine tornadoes. Total damage from the storm was estimated at 750 million dollars.
 
AUGUST 9TH, 1878 The second most deadly tornado in New England history struck Wallingford CT killing 34 persons, injuring 100 others, and completely destroying thirty homes. The tornado started as a waterspout over a dam on the Quinnipiac River. It was 400 to 600 feet wide, and had a short path length of two miles.
 
AUGUST 9TH, 1969 A tornado hit Cincinnati OH killing four persons and causing fifteen million dollars property damage. The tornado moved in a southeasterly direction at 40 to 50 mph.
 
AUGUST 8TH, 1882 An August snowstorm was reported by a ship on Lake Michigan. A thick cloud reportedly burst on the decks covering them with snow and slush six inches deep. Snow showers were observed at shore points that day.
 
AUGUST 8TH, 1983 The temperature at Big Horn Basin WY reached 115 degrees to establish a state record.
 
AUGUST 7TH, 1904 A flash flood near Pueblo CO washed a train from the tracks killing 89 passengers. A bridge, weakened by the floodwaters sweeping through the valley below, gave way under the weight of the train dashing all but the sleeping cars into the torrent drowning the occupants. Rail service was frequently interrupted in the Rocky Mountain Region and southwestern U.S. that summer due to numerous heavy downpours which washed out the railroad beds delaying trains as much as five days.
 
AUGUST 7TH, 1984 El Paso TX normally receives 1.21 inches of rain in August. During a storm which left downtown El Paso under five feet of water, they recieved over 5 inches in forty-five minutes.
 
AUGUST 6TH, 1959 A bucket survey showed that thunderstorms dropped 16.70 inches of rain on parts of Decatur County IA. The total was accepted as Iowa's 24 hour rainfall record.
 
AUGUST 6TH, 1918 Unusually hot weather began to overspread the Atlantic Coast States, from the Carolinas to southern New England. The temp- erature soared to an all-time record high of 106 degrees at Washington D.C., and Cumberland and Keedysville hit 109 degrees to establish a state record for Maryland. Temperatures were above normal east of the Rockies that month, with readings much above normal in the Lower Missouri Valley. Omaha NE reached 110 degrees.
 
AUGUST 5TH, 1843 A spectacular cloudburst near Philadelphia turned the small creeks and streams entering the Delaware River into raging torrents. As much as sixteen inches of rain fell in just three hours. Flooding destroyed thirty-two county bridges, and caused nineteen deaths. It is believed that several small tornadoes accompanied the torrential rains, one of which upset and sank more than thirty barges on the Schuylkill River.
