... On this date in weather history...

In 1998, the stalled remnants of Tropical Storm Charley
gave del Rio Texas the drenching of a lifetime, when a
staggering 17.03 inches overwhelmed the city. The
historic calendar day rainfall, which inundated the
previous record by a mind boggling 9.43 inches, caused
flash flooding of the San Felipe creek that was so severe
that around 2,000 dwellings were destroyed. Most of the
residences were swept from their foundations when a
Natural Dam on the creek failed. This released a flood
wave across del Rio that left around two thirds of the
city underwater. In all, 13 drowned and 150 were
injured. Around $50 million in damage resulted. Eight
south Texas counties were declared disaster areas. Prior
to the disaster, the daily rainfall record for del Rio
was 7.60 inches, measured on October 4th, 1969.


In 1933, the Chesapeake-Potomac hurricane struck the
North Carolina and Virginia coasts before hitting the
Washington D.C. Metro area. The hurricane briefly
reached category 4 status with gusts around 140 mph but
weakened considerably to category 1 as it crossed the
East Coast. Hardest hit was Virginia where the storm
center passed directly over Norfolk. Damage totaled
$27.2 million which would equate to $488 million today
with 30 fatalities.
