Today in Weather History

On this day, in 1927, a historical flooding event took place in the state of Vermont. With the combination of a cold front moving into the region as well as a tropical storm moving up the coast, what was expected to only be trace amounts of precipitation turned into 6 to 10 inches. As a result, 1,285 bridges, were completely destroyed, and eighty-four lives were lost.
