Heavy rains and localized severe flooding made the headlines on this date in 1984, when persistent thunderstorms during the night caused flash flooding near Williston, resulting in culvert overflowing and washing out the railroad bed beneath the tracks. The Amtrak’s Montreal derailed, killing 5 people, and injuring about 150. The nearest official rainfalls were 1.59 in Essex Junction, and 1.42 in Burlington, but estimates of 5 inches nearer Williston.
