On this date in 1969, Hurricane Camille formed and became one of only three category 5 hurricanes to hit the US. Peak sustained surface winds in Camille were measured at 190 MPH, before the gauge broke. Estimates have it over 200 MPH.
- On this date in 1936, it was 115 degrees at McPherson, Kansas.
- On this date in 1894, it was 110 degrees at Independence, Kansas.
- On this date in 1943, it was 111 degrees at Conway, Arkansas.
- On this date in 1923, it was 111 degrees at Claremore, Oklahoma.
- On this date in 1919, it was 110 degrees at Mutual, Oklahoma.
- On this date in 1930, it was 110 degrees at Altus, Oklahoma.
- On this date in 1934, it was 111 degrees at Jefferson, Oklahoma
- On this date in 1956, it was 113 degrees at Hennessey, Oklahoma
- On this date in 1937, it was 114 degrees at Pierre, South Dakota
- On this date in 1965, it was 110 degrees at Oahe Dam, South Dakota
- On this date in 1925, it was 110 degrees at Encinas, Texas
- On this date in 1962, it was 111 degrees at Eagle Pass, Texas
- On this date in 1969, the same day Camille formed, it was 111 degrees at Albany, Texas.
Was it really 11 degrees in August in Eagle Pass or is that a typo? I can’t seem to corroborate that record. I would believe 110 or 111, though!
Gotta be a typo.
First the climate, then the rivers
Imagine the Climate Change whoppers a Camille or even an Andrew would Spawn today. Though Andrew was a much more compact storm than Camille it was still a CAT 5 with 175 mph sustained.
When these kind of things are pointed out to alarmists, they’ll either say that those hurricanes were “natural”, ignore, or censor you.
If the former, and you ask them how to tell the difference between natural and “human caused”, they’ll either say it’s because CO2 is at higher levels now, ignore, or censor you.
So the temp gets up to 96 deg. F in NYC and it’s national news making the Drudge Report.
Tough people there in the Big Apple. [sarc].
I have seen it over 100F just north of NYC as a kid in the 1960s
If I am not mistaken, all 50 state record highs (even Alaska!) is at or over 100F, with many of these posted in the 1930s, and some are even older than that.
Okay, maybe I was wrong about Alaska, though the link is to Wikipedia, there should be links to the MMWR somewhere, from here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U.S._state_temperature_extremes.
Argh, not the MMWR, but the Monthly Reports. Why am I channeling the CDC & P? :(
I was 12 at the time of Camille. Members of the younger generations in Mississippi still speak of it. We were unable to get credible information at the time but since Al Gore invented the Internet, everyone can follow storms.
I was stationed at Keesler during Camille.
Humans do not understand the source of energy that controls Earth’s climate and human destiny because:
1. Einstein reported mass (m) is stored energy (E) in 1905 before isotopes were known.
2. Aston measured exact rest masses of isotopes and reported a source of energy there that offered humanity “powers beyond the dreams of scientific fiction” in 1922.
3. Chadwick discovered the neutron in 1932, a nuclear particle that explained different masses of isotopes and Aston’s mysterious source of nuclear energy.
4. Weizacker in 1935, joined by Hans Bethe in 1936, derived a semi-empirical nuclear mass equation that predicted nuclear “binding energy” and obscured neutron repulsion.
The London GeoEthics Conference on Climate Change may end humanity’s inability to understand the implications of Einstein’s 1905 discovery for the past 112 years.
CORRECTION: 111 years
You got your climate years mixed up, but I bet you know the “statute of limitation” years!
(Tony will censor this, based on the donations by Ollie. It’s called “pseudoscience”.)
Where are all the hurricanes?
On hurricane island, of course!
Well, stick around. This hurricane season is sworn to be different from the past decade. NOAA says so/sarc. The guy I trust most for accurate weather reporting, Joe Bastardi says so, also. But then, he was only about 80 percent accurate on last winter’s forecast.
There is one coming off the Africa Coast now that looks like it could make the big leagues. But even if it does they’re forecasting that it will turn north while still well out in the Atlantic.
Those temps are hotter than most of the days in August, so far this year, in Yuma, AZ. That’s impressive.
