On This Day
1880 – A violent early season blizzard raked Minnesota and the Dakotas. Winds gusted to 70 mph at Yankton, South Dakota, and snow drifts 10 to 15 feet high were reported in northwest Iowa and southeast South Dakota. Saint Paul, Minnesota, reported a barometric pressure of 28.65 inches on the 16th. Railroads were blocked by drifts of snow which remained throughout the severe winter to follow. Gales did extensive damage to ship on the Great Lakes.
1966 – Iowa experienced its worst late season tornado of record. In just one minute a twister tore through the town of Belmond leveling 75 percent of the businesses, and 100 homes, causing more than eleven million dollars damage.
