their gaze from the beleaguered populace The respite would prove to be short-lived, however, and the calm was soon replaced with the violence of the worst duster of the Dust Bowl drought The date was April I4 I935 and will be forever remembered as Black Sunday Unlike the sand blows that occurred with the sirocco-like winds from the southwest, the Black Sunday event was one of the less frequent hut more dramatic storms tiome south on polar air originating in Canada Rising some 8 000 feet into the air these churning walls of dirt generated massive amounts of static electricity, complete with their own thunder and lightning Reports of the storm indicate that the cold air from the Norther struck first, with the wall ot dust following soon thereafter Temperatures plunged 40 degrees along the storm Iront before the dust hit Ralph H Guy National Weather Service coop erative observer in Kenton Oklahoma, noted about the storm Severe dust storm hit at 4 20 p m turning afternoon brightness

areas of Oklahoma were not immune to the dust The Oklahoma City Airport station noted dust on 18 days during the month Black Sunday marked the turning point in the Federal Government s recognition of
