On this Day in Weather History...
In 2006, Wichita set its all time record high temperature for the month of October when the mercury soared to 97 degrees. The previous record high temperature for October in Wichita had been 95 degrees set on October 8th, 1979. In 2010, Tropical Storm Nicole finally vacated the Mid-Atlantic Coast but not until inundating much of the region with 1 to nearly 2 feet of rain in a 5 day period. Hardest hit were the coasts of North Carolina and Virginia, where 13 to nearly 23 inches of rain caused horrific flooding that claimed 6 lives, 5 in North Carolina and 1 in Pennsylvania. Flooding was so deep that cars actually floated atop each other. Wilmington, North Carolina 'rained supreme' by measuring a staggering 22.54 inches from September 26th to the 30th. However, Nicole died a slow death as she would dump 6 to 10 inches of rain on New York City and Boston. && In 1752, the second severe hurricane in two weeks struck the Carolinas. The storm destroyed the Onslow County Courthouse and all the records were destroyed. Beacon Island completely disappeared. Some people blamed the disaster on the change from the Julian to Gregorian calendar in early September.
