Discrepancies:

We gathered information for this event from the SPC & NCDC Databases and the March 1964 Storm Data Publication and found the following differences:

Counties:

  • SPC lists Gloucester, Camden, Burlington and Ocean Counties in their database as counties in the path.
  • NCDC and Storm Data have the above counties and also Monmouth.  When you plot the official coordinates, the path does end in Monmouth County.
