Today's Weather Trivia

May 30 1961:
The most intense rainstorm ever in Canada-250 mm in less than 1 hour-occurred at Buffalo Gap, SK. Accompanied by heavy hail and strong winds, the torrents of water washed out roads, eroded fields, and even peeled bark from several large trees. The land was stripped clean of soil and vegetation. Strong winds moved an empty boxcar upgrade for 55 m.
