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

In 1989... afternoon and evening severe thunderstorms tore
through southeast Nebraska... northern and eastern
Kansas... as well as Missouri. Baseball sized hail
bombarded areas a few miles south of Belleville
Kansas... while tennis Ball sized hail pummeled areas just
south of Lincoln Nebraska.

&&

In 1883... the colossal eruption of the krakatau
Volcano... located in the sunda straits in western
Indonesia... reached a Climax. Actually comprised of 3
volcanoes... the krakatau eruption was so violent that 2
of the volcanoes disappeared when their Magma Chambers
emptied and collapsed while around 1/2 of the 3rd and
largest was blown apart. The collapsed volcanoes were
responsible for the gigantic tsunamis that killed around
36,000 people.The most horrific of the tsunamis reached
a nightmarish 135 feet as it roared into the port of
telok betong. The average global temperature in 1884
cooled 1.5 degrees celsius and would be 1.2 degrees below
normal for the next 5 years. The sun and moon appeared
blue and green throughout the Pacific basin. Believed to
be the loudest noise ever recorded... the eruption was
heard nearly 3,000 miles away on the western Indian Ocean
island of rodrigues.
