As many of you know by now, I like to look at hand-written historical accounts of weather events. The weather watcher in Hope, AR logged a lot of information in 1921. Here's the page from April of 1921 in Hope, AR. Click to enlarge:
"Awful cyclone 5 miles of Hope, 5PM. Path 1/2 mile to 1.5 miles wide and 40 miles long (path) ## people killed. Property damage at least $200###. 205 families homeless... <not sure about the rest>"
In case you wondered what it was like in Jonesboro, the records show thunderstorms... and a very wet month. Click to enlarge:
Have a good evening,
