(NWS Louisville)
...1918...
A single bolt of lightning struck 504 sheep dead in their tracks at the
Wasatch National Forest in Utah. Sheep often herd together in storms, and
as a result the shock from the lightning bolt was passed from one animal to
another. (David Ludlum)
...1986...
Hurricane Estelle passed 120 miles south of the Hawaiian Islands creating a
ten to twenty foot surf. The large swells resulted from a combination of
high tides, a full moon, and 50 mph winds. The hurricane also deluged Oahu
Island with as much as 6.86 inches of rain on the 24th and 25th of the
month. (Storm Data)
...1987...
Barrow AK receives 1.38 inches in 24 hours on the 21st and 22nd, an
all-time record for that location. The average annual precipitation for
Barrow is just 4.75 inches. Thunderstorms in Montana produced 4 to 6 inches
of rain in Glacier County causing extensive flooding along Divide Creek.
Missoula MT received 1.71 inches of rain in 24 hours, a record for the
month of July. (The National Weather Summary) (The Weather Channel)
...1988...
Six cities in the south central U.S. reported record low temperatures for
the date, including Pueblo CO with a reading of 48 degrees. Thunderstorms
over the Atlantic Coast Region drenched Wilmington NC with 6.49 inches of
rain in about eight hours. (The National Weather Summary)
...1989...
Showers and thunderstorms prevailed across the southeastern third of the
country. Afternoon thunderstorms in Florida produced wind gusts to 86 mph

winds gusting to 69 mph at Crystal Lake damaged nineteen mobile homes.
(Storm Data) (The National Weather Summary)
