inches in just six hours. The downpours and resultant flooding in

One of the most "photo-genic" tornadoes touched down in the northern
suburbs of Minneapolis MN during the late afternoon. The very slow moving
tornado actually appeared live on the evening news by way of an aerial

quite the prima donna, staying visible to tens of thousands of persons for
thirty minutes. It was moderate in intensity, with winds of 113-157 mph,
and caused 650 thousand dollars damage. (Storm Data)
Cool weather prevailed in the western U.S. Seven cities reported record low

California from a storm the previous day. During that storm, winds gusting
