Hauer, Katrin; Pfeifer, Niki (2011): Reporting on Historical Severe Storms: Two Examples of Utrecht (1674) and Abtenau (1796). In: Atmospheric Research, Vol. 100, No. 4: 580 - 585

The paper surveys written and pictorial sources on two examples of severe storms in the Netherlands and in Austria in Early Modern Times. A cultural-historical tool is proposed to investigate the human dimension of the storm consequences. The retrospective analysis of a tornado (1674, Utrecht) and a previously rediscovered hailstorm (1796, Abtenau) illustrate the approach.
