In 1983, rain and melting snow caused widespread flooding from
New England to Ohio. The flooding in the Merrimack Valley of
Massachusetts was the worst in 50 years and caused 42 million
dollars in damage.
In 1988, a strong storm produced wind gusts to 75 mph in the
Chicago area and wind gusts to 92 mph at Goshen, Indiana. These
high winds created 25-foot waves on Lake Michigan.
In 2005, a low pressure system produced strong to severe
thunderstorms across the lower Mississippi Valley. There were 32
tornado reports, destroying 20 to 25 homes and injuring seven
people.
