In 1986, severe thunderstorms tore through South Dakota,
northeast Nebraska and Iowa. Parts of central and
eastern South Dakota were clobbered by baseball and
softball sized hail, as well as three F2 tornadoes that
caused around $500,000 damage.An F3 tornado with a
track 40 miles long but only around 75 yards wide,
crossed the Nebraska/Iowa border 6 miles south of Sioux
City. It caused around $50 million damage in Dakota
County Nebraska and $500 million damage in extreme
western Iowa. In fact, 6 tornadoes struck western and
central Iowa. Most of Iowa was raked by 60 to 80 mph
winds.The winds derailed 18 trailer flat cars of a west
bound freight train near Boone Iowa. Sixteen of the cars
fell 187 feet into the Des Moines River.


In 1819, a small but intense hurricane struck the Gulf
Coast from Louisiana to Alabama. In Mississippi, Bay
Saint Louis and Pass Christian took direct hits where
most houses were leveled. The exact total of fatalities
is unknown, however 41 crew of a sailing ship were
killed. At the time, it was considered the worst
hurricane in 50 years.These were two of the areas over
which hurricane Camille, which achieved a category 5
rating, would cause catastrophic destruction and kill 259
people on August 17th, 1969.
