...1959...
Three tornadoes spawned by the remnants of Hurricane Gracie killed 12
persons at Ivy VA. (The Weather Channel)
...1970...
A nineteen month drought in southern California came to a climax. The
drought, which made brush and buildings tinder dry, set up the worst fire
conditions in California history as hot Santa Anna winds sent the
temperature soaring to 105 degrees at Los Angeles, and to 97 degrees at San
Diego. During that last week of September whole communities of interior San
Diego County were consumed by fire. Half a million acres were burned, and
the fires caused fifty million dollars damage. (David Ludlum)
...1977...
The temperature at Wichita Falls TX soared to 108 degrees to establish a
record for September. (The Weather Channel)
...1986...
Thunderstorms, which had inundated northern sections of Oklahoma with heavy
rain, temporarily shifted southward producing 4 to 8 inches rains from
Shawnee to Stilwell. Baseball size hail and 80 mph winds ripped through
parts of southeast Oklahoma City, and thunderstorm winds caused more than
half a million dollars damage at Shawnee. (Storm Data)
...1987...
Afternoon thunderstorms in Michigan produced hail an inch in diameter at
Pinckney, and wind gusts to 68 mph at Wyandotte. A thunderstorm in northern
Indiana produced wet snow at South Bend. Seven cities in the northwestern
U.S. reported record high temperatures for the date, including readings of
98 degrees at Medford OR and 101 degrees at downtown Sacramento CA. (The
