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

In 1990... the deadliest tornado to strike the Chicago
Metro area since April 21st... 1967 did so when the
violent Plainfield tornado tore a 16 mile... one third
mile wide path along the southwest suburbs of Chicago.
The tornado started in Oswego... located 12 miles south of
Aurora... then tore through Plainfield... to west Joliet.
In all... the tornado... rated an F5... destroyed 7
subdivisions... three schools... among them Plainfield High
School... shopping malls... several apartment complexes and
overturned gravestones. People were thrown hundreds of
yards to their deaths.A 20-ton tractor trailer was
thrown just over half a mile... killing the driver while
other cars were thrown considerable distances.

&&

In 1988... severe thunderstorms tore through New York
state and Vermont. A tornado struck Hector New
York... killing one person... while in Vermont... tennis
Ball sized hail pummeled the town of Brandon and 80 mph
gusts whipped through Lyndonville. In 1959... an Air
Force pilot bailed out of his jet at an altitude of
46,000 feet into a violent thunderstorm... and lived to
tell about it! What would normally have been about a 13
minute descent took around 45 minutes.
