Burns' Day Storm

Categories: Tragedy

Because this storm hit during the day-time it caused more human casualties than the Great Storm of 1987. Then the death toll was 22, compared with 47 on Burns' Day. Under other names (e.g. Daria) this storm raged over Europe and we believe the total loss of life was 97. More info at ITV.

Given the death toll discrepancy it's odd that we have found only two memorials for the Burn's Day Storm but 11 for the Great Storm.
