On this Day in Weather History...
In 1926, the Great Miami Hurricane unleashed 138 mph winds which drove ocean waters into Biscayne Bay where 135 people drowned. The eye passed directly over Miami, at which time the barometric pressure dropped to 27.61 inches. Tides up to 12 feet accompanied the hurricane, which claimed a total of 372 lives. In 1988, a strong cold front produced severe thunderstorms across the Northern Plains. Behind the front, north winds gusted to 92 mph in Fort Collins, Colorado while 7 to 12 inches of snow blanketed the Rockies in Montana.
