Blizzard among billion-dollar disasters
National Climatic Data Center researchers, using information from a variety of sources, have determined that the January "Blizzard of '96" did an estimated $2 billion in damage and killed 100 people. This is a far lower economic cost than Hurricane Andrew in 1992 and the Midwest floods during the summer of 1993. But, the death toll was higher. The damage costs included both insured and uninsured loses. Costs all use the value of the dollar at the time of the event.
  • The complete text of the " Billion Dollar U.S. Weather Disasters 1980 - 1999 ," report is available on the Climate Center's World Wide Web site. The University Center for Atmospheric Research has state-by-state information on the costs of weather disasters in its Extreme Weather Sourcebook A USA TODAY Online Index has links to news stories the week of Jan. 6 through 10, which included the Blizzard of 1996 and two other storms.

Blizzards and Hailstorms
A blizzard A hailstorm is precipitation in the form of balls or lumps of clear ice and compact snow. It is not known for sure how hailstones form and grow. We do know that they are spherical or irregularly spherical and usually vary in diameter up to 1/2 in. (1.3 cm); in rare cases hailstones having diameters up to 5 in. (12.7 cm) have been observed. Hail causes much damage and injury to crops, livestock, property, and airplanes.
  • Where: United States When: The worst winter storm in U.S. history, the Blizzard of 1888 surprised the northeastern United States with as much as five feet of snow in some areas. Two hundred boats sank and more than 400 people died due to very powerful winds and cold temperatures. Where: United States When: The blizzard of 1978 was one of the most powerful snowstorms to hit the East Coast. It crippled New York and New England for days, in many areas dumping more than three feet of snow. Where: Russia (formerly the Soviet Union) When: In Rostov, 23 people and even more cattle were killed by hailstones weighing up to 2 pounds each.

Humans are powerless to prevent the destruction that the natural world can cause, and sometimes powerless to even predict it. People try though; weathermen have a job because people want to hear what Mother Nature has in store for them everyday. We plan our outdoor activities, the clothes we buy and wear, the transportation we use depending on weather conditions. People even move to a particular place -Hawaii would be my choice - because they like a certain kind of weather. But when weather and nature get wacky, what can humans do?

The Blizzard of 1888
The Blizzard of 1888 hit the northeastern United States with a fierce intensity that etched itself into people's memories. An unrelenting fury of heavy snows, bitter cold, and high winds pounded the region from Washington, D.C., to the Canadian border in a storm that lasted for three days in mid-March. The storm took people by surprise, and many were unprepared for the resulting isolation and destruction. Snow was measured in Connecticut between twenty and fifty inches, but high winds caused snowdrifts up to twenty feet in several areas. In one twenty-four hour period, thirty-one inches of snow fell in New Haven with forty-five inches as the total by the end of the storm. Railroad service was halted, businesses had to shut down, and citizens of the state were imprisoned in their homes while the storm raged. It took days for many to dig themselves out. Over 400 people across the east coast died in the storm, and damage was estimated at $20 million. When the storms passed, SNET, just ten years old then, got to work repairing lines and restoring telephone service. While no record has survived of the impact of disruption around the state, it was estimated that in New Haven alone over 25% of telephones were out of service.

Blizzard in Chicago; Record snow from Rockies to Great Lakes
By Patrick Mondout In January of 1979, Chicago experienced one of its worst blizzards on record. The storm started on the night of Friday, January 12th and left 20 inches of snow over the weekend on top of a base of seven to ten inches. It closed O'Hare - the world's busiest airport - for 46 hours and left the mayor's re-election plans in shambles. The blizzard itself devastated areas from the Rockies to the Great Lakes and left at least 99 dead. In Iowa, National Guard helicopters brought in 75,000 pounds of hay to starving cattle. Similar efforts were made throughout the Midwest. In Chicago, roofs collapsed from the weight of the snow, and transportation was brought to a standstill for nearly a week. Garbage trucks were unable to run and the rats took advantage. The salt used to de-ice the roads caused motor failures on some of the trains. Abandoned cars slowed snow removal efforts. Buses were at least two hours behind schedule if they were running at all. After six days, only half of the runways at O'Hare were open for traffic. President Carter declared 23 counties in Northern Illinois disaster areas. Governor James Thompson of Illinois initially toured the state for photo-ops, but then headed to Florida for a vacation with his family. He cut his vacation short after citizens expressed outrage. He was not the only politician to suffer.

Blizzard of 1978
By: Amy L
I n February of 1978, a disastrous snowstorm took place, right in the heart of New England. This storm put people with no power, no transportation, other than to risk their lives and venture out into the cold by foot, and with no heat. The blizzard was the worst and most disruptive ever. The heavy snowfall and high winds lasted over 24 hours, giving a total of a near 30" of snow on top of some 6" that had fallen from previous days. The only way people could leave their house was to go out of their windows because their doors had be- come blocked from all of the snow that had built up.
People were trapped in all different types of situations. Some were unable to leave their place of employment, or work, some were stuck inside of their cars be- cause they were trying to get home, or in other cases they were just stupid enough to attempt to drive in this tremendous snow- storm, or they were in other places where they were trying to seek refuge. Once the storm hit, the actual act of traveling by automobiles was declared illegal. This storm basically caused New England to go completely dead for over a week. There was no mail delivered or even sorted for that matter, no school for anyone, no working, no going out of the house, no nothing. Most places were at a complete standstill.
