THE BLIZZARD OF ’93 REMEMBERED
This time 20 years ago, Rome was mired in snow that resulted from the Blizzard of ’93. Local historian Ken Studdard says that the Blizzard was likely the worst thing that ever happened weather-wise in this area. He says there are a couple of weather events that come close, such as the ice storm of 1960. Studdard believes that emergency officials are better prepared these days to handle emergencies like the Blizzard of ’93.
The Blizzard of ’93 officially began with heavy snowfall, lightning and thunder on Friday, March 12, 1993. Some two feet fell in areas around Floyd County over that weekend.
