This Day In Weather History

New Holstein, WI (2007)
Strong thunderstorm winds blew two airplanes into one another at the local airport.

New York/MA (1819)
Two simultaneous cloudbursts, 45 miles apart; A bucket survey claimed 15" of rain fell at Catskill, NY. Highways were completely washed out. One washout started west of the old Albany Post Road and spread eastward across the road until it was 190 feet wide and 80 feet deep in a distance of 160 paces. At Westfield Valley, "suddenly the windows of heaven seemed to have been opened and the rain fell in such torrents that in less than 5 hours, Westfield River rose at least 20 feet above its usual height at low water. The river overflowed its banks with great rapidity and violence, sweeping away every bridge, fence and building which opposed its current."

Pittsburgh, PA (1872)
Cloudburst of 30 minutes followed by a flash flood. Over 133 people drowned on the north side of Butcher Run and Wood's Run.
