Weather History for August 30

Severe thunderstorms moved south across western Oklahoma on this date in 1959, leaving several swaths of extensive hail damage. The Weatherford area was especially hard hit. Hail up to golf ball size caused severe damage to roofs and windows on almost all homes and buildings in the Weatherford area. Other hail paths, some of which caused 100 percent crop damage, extended from Dill City, south to the Red River in Cotton County, over Grandfield, Granite, and Headrick. The storms continued into north Texas, where wind damage was reported in the Burkburnett, Wichita Falls, Iowa Park, and Henrietta areas. Wind gusts to 75 mph were measured.
