"The 5 deadliest weather events of all time"

Post by Jim Eshelman » Thu May 18, 2017 5:46 pm

The Science section of Business Insider today posted a list of "The 5 deadliest weather events of all time." That is, these were each the historically deadliest occasion of five different kinds of extreme weather.

1. Deadliest hailstorm: April 30, 1888, Moradabad, India (246 deaths)

2. Deadliest lightning strike: December 23, 1975, Manical Tribal Trust Lands in Zimbabwe (21 deaths)

3. Deadliest indirect lightning strike: Lightning caused an oil fire November 2, 1994, Dronka, Egypt (469 deaths)

4. Deadliest tornado: April 26 1989, Manikganj district, Bangladesh (1,300 deaths)

5. Deadliest hurricane (tropical cyclone): November12-13, 1970, Bangladesh (300,000 deaths)

Furthermore, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Natural_disaster is an interesting article that might be worth follow-up checking in the future.

Event 1: Deadliest hailstorm

Post by Jim Eshelman » Thu May 18, 2017 5:48 pm

Reportedly there were hailstones the size of "goose eggs and oranges and cricket balls." The WMO report cites an eyewitness who said that roofs collapsed and doors and windows were smashed by the ice. 

"Men caught in the open and without shelter were simply pounded to death by the hail. Fourteen bodies were found in the race-course. More than one marriage party were caught by the storm near the banks of the river, and were annihilated. The police report that 1,600 head of cattle, sheep, and goats were killed,” wrote John Eliot, the first director-general of the India Meteorological Department, according to the WMO report.

(For comparison, a separate reference cites as one "particularly damaging hailstorm" one in Munich on July 12, 1984, which caused $2B in damage.)

Event 2: Deadliest lightning strike

Post by Jim Eshelman » Thu May 18, 2017 5:49 pm

The report says that nearly 90% of sub-Saharan buildings are not lightning safe, often made of mud-brick with thatch or sheet metal roofs. 
Deadliest lightning strike: December 23, 1975, Manical Tribal Trust Lands in Zimbabwe (21 deaths)

Without a more identifiable area, I will use Harare, the capital of Zimbabwe, for noon, December 23, 1975. (Zibabwe isn't huge, though it's large enough that we can expect some blurring of orb precision.

Event 3: Deadliest indirect lightning strike

Post by Jim Eshelman » Thu May 18, 2017 5:49 pm

In 1994, a flash of lightning caused a fire that ignited three oil tanks, each holding about 5,000 tons of aircraft or diesel fuel. The railway line holding the tanks collapsed in a flood and floodwaters carried the blazing fuel into Dronka. 
Deadliest indirect lightning strike: Lightning caused an oil fire November 2, 1994, Dronka, Egypt (469 deaths)
This is the fire I examine I SMA with a city name of Durunkah. Same event, same charts. It began at 6:30 AM EET.

Event 4: Deadliest tornado

Post by Jim Eshelman » Thu May 18, 2017 5:50 pm

The 1989 tornado had a track about a mile wide and destroyed two towns, injuring over 12,000 and leaving about 80,000 people homeless. 
Deadliest tornado: April 26 1989, Manikganj district, Bangladesh (1,300 deaths)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daulatpur ... ia_tornado

Cities of Daulatpur and Saturia were most affected. The tornado was seen first at 6:25 PM local time southwest of "where a majority of fatalities occurred." I think this means near Daulatpur (23N58, 89E50).

Event 5: Deadlist hurricane

Post by Jim Eshelman » Thu May 18, 2017 5:50 pm

The storm sometimes known as the "Great Bhola Cyclone" caused between 300,000 and 500,000 deaths when the storm surge overwhelmed island and tidal flats along the Bay of Bengal. 
Deadliest hurricane (tropical cyclone): November 12-13, 1970, Bangladesh (300,000 deaths)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1970_Bhola_cyclone

I need to add this to the book since it remains "the deadliest tropical cyclone ever recorded." It formed over the Bay of Bengal, intensified as it travelled north, Comparing sources, I find that it made first landfall on the coast of East Pakistan (now Bangladesh) on during the night of November 12 (or, actually, into the 13th). This was the natural disaster that motivated George Harrison to produce his "Concert for Bangladesh" the following year.

The place of landfall was at the coast at Chittagong (the city is within a few miles of the coast). It appears to have made landfall at 23:00 UT, or about 4:00 AM the next morning in Bangladesh.
