Burns' Day Storm

Event  From 25/1/1990  To 26/1/1990

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 Burn's 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 we can't explain why we have found only one memorial for the Burn's Day Storm but 9 for the Great Storm (including 2 not yet published).
