AUGUST 6

   1866: Torrential rain dumped 10.30 inches at Sibley in 24 hours. Widespread flooding occurred, washing out bridges and drowning many people. In Fillmore County it was known as the 'Wisel Flood' because 3 members of the Wisel family perished in the flood.

   1890 - Thunderstorms left four inches of hail covering the ground in Adair and Union counties in Iowa. The hail drifted into six-foot mounds and in some places remained on the ground for 26 days. 

   1969: Tornadoes swept across northern Minnesota, hitting Ely, Backus, Outing and Dark Lake. Damage was still seen 20 years later in the BWCA.

   1987 - Afternoon thunderstorms deluged Milwaukee, WI, with 6.84 inches of rain, including more than five inches in two hours.  Floodwaters were four feet deep at the Milwaukee County Stadium and filled the basement of the main airport terminal.
