25th Anniversary of the "Storm of the Century"

Posted: Updated:

It's the 25th anniversary of the '93 blizzard or what many have dubbed "the Storm of the Century".  The storm hit the Twin Tiers hard with many areas picking up over 2 feet of snow.  The strong winds also resulted in considerable drifting.  The combination of the existing snow pack, newly fallen snow and strong winds resulted in snow drifts 8 feet high.  The storm is still this country's most costliest winter storm on record.  270 people died nationally because of the storm.  The storm had a low pressure of 960 millibars...comparable to a category 3 hurricane.
