The Storm Report Rewind for September 30

In 1959 - Three tornadoes spawned by the remnants of Hurricane Gracie killed 12 persons at Ivy, Virginia.

In 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.

In 1977 - The temperature at Wichita Falls, Texas, soared to 108 degrees to establish a record for September.
