Radar-Estimated Rainfall from Yesterday
On This Day
1871 – Prolonged drought and desicating winds led to the great Chicago fire, the Peshtigo horror, and the Michigan fire holocaust. Fire destroyed more than 17,000 buildings killing more than 200 persons in the city of Chicago, while a fire consumed the town of Peshtigo, Wisconsin, killing more than 1100 persons. In Wisconsin, a million acres of land were burned, and in Michigan, 2.5 million acres were burned killing 200 persons. “Tornadoes of fire” generated by intense heat caused houses to explode in fire, and burned to death scores of persons seeking refuge in open fields.
There are no threats to the U.S. at this time, nor are any expected for the next five days.
I’m so proud to be contracted with Crossville City Fire to provide critical weather support for emergency services!
