CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Eighteen years ago, Cincinnati was buried by its largest snowfall in history.

A whopping 18.5 inches fell over three days Feb. 4, 5 and 6, 1998, mostly on Feb. 4.

It led to hundreds of car accidents and flights being canceled at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport.

Interestingly enough, this snow event occurred during a strong El Nino year like this one. It had been a mild winter up until this storm arrived.
