Tornadoes are a rare part of the variety of weather that makes it so interesting here, but they do occur. A note from John Hayward’s “A Gazatteer of Vermont” indicates on this date in 1833, a tornado tracked from Salem Pond in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom, just east of Newport, east-northeast to Holland, Norton, and finally into Quebec, and was at times up to three quarters of a mile wide, knocking downs trees and buildings along the way.
