April 15[edit]

1927: In New Orleans, 15 inches (380 mm) of rain fell in 18 hours, worsening an already historic flood and leading to the fateful (and ultimately unnecessary) decision to intentionally breach a levee south of the city.

1956: An F4 tornado killed 25 people in the Birmingham, Alabama area.
