Today in weather history

In 1980...

A record 42 consecutive days of 100 degree plus heat finally ended at Dallas Fort Worth Airport. However, the D F W metroplex would get torched by 19 more days of triple digit Texas heat in August 1980, of which 12 occurred consecutively from the 16th to the 27th. The horrific heat wave of 1980 contributed to around 1,200 deaths nationally and an estimated $20 billion damage.
