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

In 1890... an outbreak of 23 tornadoes roared through the
Ohio Valley... of which 6 were violent.Hardest hit was
Louisville Kentucky... where 76 people were killed... 200
were injured... and $2.5 million damage resulted. In
1984... the temperature at Brownsville Texas soared to 106
degrees... and Cotulla Texas... reached 108
degrees... equaling the March record for the United States
at that time.

&&

In 1977... dense fog played but one major factor in the
worst disaster in aviation history when two boeing 747s
collided on the runway at tenerife Airport in the Canary
Islands. In all... 583 people were killed when a klm
747... attempting to take off... collided with a pan am 747
as it was taxiing down the same runway. Both aircraft
were among 5 aircraft that had been diverted to tenerife
after a terrorist detonated a bomb at gran canaria
international Airport on the island of Las Palmas... which
had been the original destination for both flights.
Miraculously... 61 survived... all of whom were aboard The
Pan am flight.
