DAYTON — If you think we’ve had a rough winter so far, at least it’s not a repeat of 1978.
On Jan. 26, the storm dropped over a foot of snow; this date still holds the record for the most snow in Dayton in a 24-hour period, according to Dayton Daily News archives.
The 40th anniversary of the Blizzard of 1978 is this week. The blizzard lasted three days, from Jan. 25 until Jan. 27, 1978.
The National Guard was called in to help deliver supplies and rescue those stuck in the snow. Interstate 75 was closed for four days, air traffic was halted at the airport, and RTA and the postal servic both halted service.
Dayton officials estimated the blizzard caused over $4 million in damages, according to the archives.
