Today in Weather History

Good evening, fellow readers!

On this day, in 2006, an early morning tornado tore through southeastern counties of North Carolina. This tornado was ranked a three on the Fujita Scale, to which correlates with severe damage and winds in the range of 158 to 206 miles per hour. Its path was a mile long, leaving a few dozen trees (12-18 inch diameter) snapped, a tractor flipped, and several trailer homes lifted from their foundation and broken apart. A total of twenty people were injured and eight were killed. Below is a base reflectivity loop of this storm.
