Labor Day 1935 : Most Intense US Hurricane

On Labor Day, 1935 the Florida Keys were hit by a category 5 hurricane with 185 MPH winds. The winds were so strong, it blew a train thirty feet off the tracks. It was the most intense hurricane in US history.

This came a few weeks after the worst dust storm and most intense rainfall on record.

On May 31, 1935 Woodward Ranch, Texas set the world record with 22 inches of rain in less than three hours.

Colorado got nearly that much rain a few hours earlier.
