Rockport WV reported nineteen inches of rain in two hours and ten minutes that Thursday evening. Tygart Creek rose 22 feet in one hour, and villages were swept away on Tygart, Slate, Tucker, and Sandy Creeks. (The Weather Channel) ...1942... A record deluge occurred at Smethport in northern Pennsylvania, with 30.7 inches in just six hours. The downpours and resultant flooding in Pennsylvania were devastating. (David Ludlum) ...1986... 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 video taken by the KARE-TV helicopter crew. The tornado, unlike most, was 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) ...1987... Cool weather prevailed in the western U.S. Seven cities reported record low temperatures for the date, including Alamosa CO with a reading of 38 degrees. The low of 52 degrees at Bakersfield CA was a record for July. Up to eight inches of snow covered the Northern Sierra Nevada Range of California from a storm the previous day. During that storm, winds gusting to 52 mph at Slide Mountain NV produced a wind chill reading of 20 degrees below zero. Susanville CA reached 17 degrees that previous day, Blue Canyon CA dipped to a July record of 36 degrees, and the high of 44 degrees at Klamath Falls OR smashed their previous record for July by ten degrees. (The National Weather Summary) ...1988... Sweltering heat continued in California, with record highs of 111 degrees at Redding and 112 degrees at Sacramento. Death Valley CA hit 127 degrees.
