... On this date in weather history...

In 2005, around 1 million people were evacuated from the
Texas coast as Hurricane Rita developed into the third
most intense hurricane on record. The barometric
pressure near the eye of the storm was 26.48 inches, a
lower reading than Hurricane Katrina which had roared
onto the Gulf Coast on August 29th.


In 1938, an extremely powerful hurricane known as "the
Long Island express" slammed into Long Island and New
England. This hideous hurricane whip lashed these areas
with sustained winds around 150 mph, gusts around 185
mph, and produced waves so huge and powerful that
seismographs on the West Coast recorded the shock of each
wave as it smashed onto New England shores! The Rhode
Island coast was overwhelmed by a 30 foot storm surge.
The hurricane killed around 600 people and caused around
$500 million damage. In 1989, hurricane Hugo slammed
into the South Carolina coast around 11 PM near
sullivan's island. Hugo was directly responsible for 13
deaths and indirectly responsible for 22 others. Another
420 people were injured from the hurricane with damage
estimated at $8 billion. Gusts reached 138 mph at Folly
Beach, 98 mph in Charleston, and 109 mph at Shaw Air
Force base.
