Local Weather History For August 17th...
One of the most memorable severe thunderstorms in recent history
struck north-central and central Oklahoma on August 17, 1994. The
communities of Lahoma and Drummond suffered the most damage from an
unusually intense supercell storm, that moved south into Oklahoma
near Manchester, and continued across Goltry, Lahoma, Drummond,
Kingfisher, and Okarche. Widespread severe damage occurred to between
500 and 800 permanent homes and businesses, and between 80 and 120
mobile homes, all the result of very large hail driven by
hurricane-force winds. Peak wind gusts in Lahoma were measured at 113
mph, before the wind equipment gave out. Hail reached golf ball to
baseball size along the entire storm track. One hailstone that fell
between Kingfisher and Okarche was said to look like a football.
Several people were treated for hypothermia in the Lahoma area as a
result of the large volume of hail, as air temperatures fell from
near 100 degrees, down into the lower 50s.
