Thursday, January 13, 1994
An arctic high pressure system dropped the mercury to extremely low temperatures for a week. The temperatures caused water and sewer pipes to burst across the state. The ruptured pipes flooded and froze homes and businesses with ice and sewage slush, racking up $50 million in damage. The coldest recorded temperature: Negative 53 near Amasa.
