Natural Disasters, November 21

1992       A major tornado struck the Houston, Texas area during the afternoon. Over the next two days the largest tornado outbreak ever to occur in the US during November spawns over 100 tornadoes before ending on the 23rd.

2004       The island of Dominica is hit by the most destructive earthquake in its history. The northern half of the island sustained the most damage, especially the town of Portsmouth. It is also felt in neighboring Guadeloupe, where only one person was killed.
