Monster Winter Storm Affects 30 States

by Jamie Robinson        February 3, 2011  |  9:15 pm  |  Category: Latest News

 

The snowstorm that pummeled much of the United States on February 1st and 2nd leaves a wake of records in its path.  Eight interesting facts about this week's weather:

  1. Oklahoma City had 10"+ inches for only the third time since they began keeping records in 1893.
  2. Blowing snow in Oklahoma City reduced visibility to 30 yards in places
  3. Interstate 70 in Missouri was closed from mile marker 5 to mile marker 218.  This is basically from Kansas City to St. Louis
  4. Warrensburg, Missouri had 21" of snow
  5. Chicago schools closed for the first time in 12 years!
  6. Snowfall in Chicago was over 20" (as recorded at both Midway and O'Hare airports)
  7. Official totals in Wisconsin - Milwaukee 19.8", Madison 18.7" and a whopping 26.5" near Racine
  8. At one point, over 100 million Americans were being impacted by the storm

 

This was one of those storms that will leave a mark on many lives. We here at SWIFT Weather will continue to work hard to provide products that will keep you ahead of the storms!
