she moved in a northerly manner over the Carolinas
Virginia Maryland and West Virginia. Among the
casualties occurred around 90 miles southeast of Cape
Hatteras where a replica of the h M S bounty was caught
and eventually sank on the 29th. Of the 16 crew, 2
perished of which one was the captain.In Virginia,
while 75 to 80 mph winds lashed the coast where 8 to 10
inch rainfalls drenched the area, a blizzard raged in
southwest Virginia where 1 to 2 feet of snow overwhelmed
the region. Close to 1 million residents may have lost
power.In Maryland, heavy rains, heavy snow and high
winds shut down all major transportation with power lost
for 50,000 to 100,000 people. In West Virginia, a
blizzard raged over most areas with snowfalls ranging
from around 1 foot in lower elevations while 2 to 3 feet
buried most of the Appalachians. In 1988, severe
thunderstorms moving out of north and northeast Texas
spawned 5 tornadoes in Louisiana in the morning. While
the tornadoes were considered weak, gusts around 75 mph
tore through Jennings Louisiana. One was killed in
northwest Louisiana when a tree fell onto the vehicle he
was driving 45 miles south of Shreveport.


In 1950 and 2014, the temperature in Wichita reached 90
