2004 Severe Weather in Review

By  | 

An MSU professor and state climatologist calls 2004 one of the most unique severe weather and natural disaster years in memory.

The year was marked with a record amount of rain in mid-michgian for May, scores of hurricanes in the southern US and the dearly South Asian Tsunami killing thousands.

Dr. Jeff Andresen, Michigan State University Professor and state climatologist says the bizarre weather and geological occurrences aren't totally unheard of however.

The oldest scientific weather observations date back about 200 years ago, so severe weather like this year's may not be completley rare.
