Links: AP | Post-Dispatch | Ironton | Photos | 1 | 2 | 3 |May 13 (Day 133, Judgment of Holy Spirit): Heavy rainstorms, strong winds, and hail the size of golf balls blasted eastern Missouri. Highways were under water, and residents of some communities were evacuated. Charles Griffey, 43, who lived east of Ironton, died when flood waters swept him from a tree in which he had taken refuge. And Michael Davis, 21, of Marble Hill died after his pickup truck was swept away by flood waters shortly after 4 AM on Highway 34 just west of Marble Hill. Stranded residents along the St. Francis River east of Ironton had to be rescued by boat. The area has been saturated by continued rain in recent weeks due to weather elephants that stretched over the area from Texas. The flooding last night was due to a weather elephant that stretched from Texas.
In addition to the flooding, high winds blew down trees and branches, which knocked out power in Missouri's St. Francois and St. Genevieve counties. About 45,000 lost power in Pennsylvania in thunderstorms with wind up to 60 mph. A tree fell on a car in Greensburg, Pennsylvania and killed one man and injured two others. And about 35,000 lost power in Maryland.
