On this Day in Weather History...
In 1935, likely the most violent hurricane ever to strike the United States, the infamous Labor Day Hurricane roared through the Florida Keys with sustained winds around 200 mph. The hurricane unleashed a 15 foot storm surge, waves around 30 feet high, killed 408 people, and caused around $6 million damage. The barometric pressure at Long Key, Florida dropped to 26.35 inches, the lowest barometric pressure ever recorded in the United States. In 2000, Salina recorded their hottest temperature in the month of September, when the mercury soared to a sizzling 110 degrees. In 2000, the high temperature in Wichita reached a sweltering 108 degrees. This tied September 3rd, 1947 for the hottest temperature ever recorded in Wichita in September.
