On this Day in Weather History...
In 1962, fog showed that it does not just cause problems for highway travel. On the Mississippi River, 30 miles north of New Orleans, dense fog caused the collision of a tanker and 4 oil barges. This caused an explosion that killed 23 people. In 1983, remnants of the Pacific Hurricane Tico caused extensive flooding in central and south central Oklahoma. Oklahoma City set daily rainfall records on the 19th with 4.98 inches and on the 20th with 5.45 inches. It was definitely 'stormin' in nearby Norman as they set a rainfall record on the 20th with 8.37 inches.
