MM’s Severe Wx Concerns
There are no indications of widespread severe weather for the next several days. Just keep in mind that any storm that develops this time of year can be locally strong.
On This Day
1933- An F-4 tornado moves for 20 miles from near Livingston to near Byrdstown. Thirty-three of the 35 deaths are in Beatty Swamps, six miles north of Livingston. The half-mile wide funnel destroys every home in the community, and kills or injures virtually every resident. Much of the area is swept clean of debris. Damage totals $100,000. There are 150 injuries. (According to the family of Ewing Hull, the air after suppertime was very quiet, although stifling for May. The Hull cabin was blown away that night, and the family woke up on the ground.) This is the deadliest tornado ever to strike Middle Tennessee. (FYI, this is the subject of my newsletter this week at https://meteorologistmarkpro.com/)
1872 – Victoria Woodhull becomes first woman nominated for US presidency by Equal Rights Party at Apollo Hall, New York City.

I have a fun class planned, complete with some experiments!
Stonehaus Winery is graciously hosting this unique class! You don’t have to be a wine drinker to appreciated the fascinating impacts of weather and climate on this industry. This fun and informative class has limited seating, so be sure and secure your spot today! We will serve refreshments.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Stonehaus will offer wine tastings at their tasting bar after class for those who are interested. Some of those wines will feature those discussed in class!
This week’s newsletter is about a historic tornado event that affected the plateau 89 years ago! That event left scars that remain across certain communities even today.
