Facts
Today SEPTEMBER 4TH, 1939-A thunderstorm deluged Washington D.C. with 4.4 inches of rain in two hours. September of that year was very dry across much of the nation, and Washington D.C. received more rain in that two hour period than most other places in the country that entire month.
 
SEPTEMBER 4TH, 1970-The greatest natural disaster of record for Arizona occurred.
