SPECIAL WEATHER

Ice Storm Strikes Illinois, New York

Today marks the anniversary of two separate ice storms that occurred
just years apart. The first occurred in 1924 in central Illinois with
1.9 inches of ice on the ground, lasting until Jan. 4. Springfield
ended up with $21 million in damage. Just five years later, an ice
storm caused significant damage in western New York with "breaking
limbs louder than a rifle shot."
