Severe Weather Safety
On This Day
1989 – Thunderstorms developing ahead of a cold front spawned ten tornadoes from Illinois to Tennessee during the afternoon and night. Snow, wind and cold prevailed in the Northern Plateau Region and the Northern Rockies. Dixie, Idaho, was blanketed with nine inches of snow, winds gusted to 87 mph at Choteau, Montana, and the temperature at Crater Lake, Oregon, dipped to 11 degrees.
1536 – Anne Boleyn, second wife of English King Henry VIII, is beheaded at the Tower of London on charges of adultery, incest and treason

The latest newsletter was released Friday, as it is each and every Friday! This newsletter focuses on the violent tornado that struck the Tansi community in May of 1995. That was a phenomenal storm that, after many quiet years, reminded us of our vulnerability to severe weather. Find out about this and more at https://meteorologistmarkpro.com/! Proceeds from subscriptions go toward supporting the MM kids classes taught monthly at both TCAT Crossville and Roane State Clarkrange.
