Today in weather history

In 1987...

a powerful storm system wreaked all kinds of havoc from the Southern Plains to the Lower Mississippi Valley. Heavy snow buried most areas from the Southern Plains to the Mid Mississippi Valley. Kansas City was buried with 10.8 inches of snow, which had set a 24 hour record for December. Meanwhile the Oklahoma Panhandle received as much as 14 inches of snow. In stark contrast, West Memphis, TN was hit by a violent tornado that killed 6, and injured around 200. The twister left 1,500 homeless, and left all residents in Crittendon County without power.
