|Statewide precipitation for April 2011|
But, my personal misery was small compared to the real disasters:
- More than 500 confirmed tornadoes, possibly more than 800; very likely to approach the all-time monthly record of 542 tornadoes set in May, 2003.
- 358 fatalities related to two tornado outbreaks
- Record rainfall all along the Ohio River Valley
- Record flooding along the Mississippi River
- Drought and wildfires in the Southern Plains
- $10-15 billion in damages
