September is the most active month in the tropics. The remnants of a tropical storm made it into the weather records on this date in 1979. Former Hurricane David brought gusty winds of 50 mph, and heavy rains, greatest in the south, including 3.66 inches in Searsburg, 3.77 inches in Pownal, and 4.15 inches in the higher elevations near Dorset. An unconfirmed tornado caused some minor wind damage near Rutland.
