South Carolina and North Carolina in Dixie Alley?[edit]

I've seen the Wikipedia article about Dixie Alley, it saids that Western North Carolina and Upstate South Carolina are part it. I don't think this ain't accurate information. Spencer H. Karter (talk) 13:41, 24 December 2015 (UTC)

Severe storms in South western Ontario, June 8, 1906[edit]

I've found references to a severe storm that crossed Southern Ontario on June 8, 1906. It ran from Sarnia to Hamilton and from Detroit to Niagara Falls, a path over 300 km long and 50 km wide at least. How should this event be reported, if at all? It looks like there are no online documents by experts to describe estimated wind speeds, was this a derecho, etc, but there are a number of newspaper archives from which a detailed description of the damage could be made. Or would that count as original research? TomLuTon (talk) 05:20, 29 January 2016 (UTC)

@TomLuTon: if there are no sources saying what type of storm it is, the best you can do without breaching WP:OR is by simply being generic and only referring to it as a storm. If no one calls it a derecho, tornado, etc., we can't either. ~ Cyclonebiskit (chat) 06:05, 29 January 2016 (UTC)
Specific classification of storms like the one described above was likely not developed until well after the early 20th Century, but you might try asking someone from Environment Canada to see if they've done any re-analysis of this specific event. Guy1890 (talk) 03:57, 1 February 2016 (UTC)
