Today in Severe Weather History for August 9

On this date in 1969, severe weather took place across much of Ohio, producing at least 2 significant tornadoes.  The first, in the Cincinnati area, tracked for nearly 12 miles and produced damage up to 400 yards wide.  Four people were killed, over 200 injured, and $2.5 million in property damage was reported (which equals approximately $4.5 million in today's dollars).  

Another tornado was reported in Clermont County, Ohio.  This tornado injured 4 people and tracked for just over 10 miles.

I heard that the sun is constantly up during winter, and constantly down during summer.
