On this date in 1880, Island Pond, VT was hit by a violent thunderstorm with damaging winds. There is no way to know whether it was a tornado or just strong thunderstorm winds, though no other reports of tornadoes are recorded. The winds blew down a steamboat house and a covered bridge, where 4 people had sought shelter. Fortunately, no one was injured.
