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

In 1962, fog showed that it does not just cause problems
for Highway travel. On the Mississippi River, 30 miles
north of New Orleans, dense fog caused the collision of a
tanker and 4 oil barges. This caused an explosion that
killed 23 people. In 1983, remnants of the Pacific
Hurricane Tico caused extensive flooding in central and
south central Oklahoma. Oklahoma City set daily rainfall
records on the 19th with 4.98 inches and on the 20th with
