More inline sources and info. Not a bad start, though. Hurricanehink (talk) 13:59, 9 August 2006 (UTC)

Added a bit of info on Utah rainfall. I will work on the inline sources later while looking for more info (it's an old storm and, despite the infamy of the Labor Day Storm, a vague one). Thanks for the compliment on the article!Jake52 My talk 01:25, 17 August 2006 (UTC)
Added more footnotes for cataloging. What else should be done on this article? Jake52 My talk 04:34, 21 August 2006 (UTC)

Peer Review?[edit]

I want to improve this article, but right now I need more opinions on what should be done and what is missing. Thanks! Jake52 My talk 06:46, 7 October 2006 (UTC)

Well, if you want a peer review, Wikipedia:WikiProject Tropical cyclones/Assessment is better than an official peer review would be. After all, people with tropical cyclone knowledge would know more of how to improve a tropical cyclone article. After re-reading it, it's close to B class, but there's still some to be done, provided there's info. The lede should be expanded, ideally to two paragraphs. The storm history should be more about the storm, and not so much relying on recon and ship reports. Recon and ship report mentions are fine to mention once in a while, but not for large portions of the storm history. In addition, using information from the actual fixes is a bit confusing. Given the lack of info on storm history (as it seems), I'd recommend merging the storm history a bit into two paragraphs; one with the development to the peak of the storm, and one post-peak to dissipation. The records section should be merged into the impact, and possibly reiterated in the intro. The impact should be expanded, as well. I know there might not be much info from this time period, but try Newspaper reports and Google. The storm history should also be organized to have meteorological statistics first (rainfall totals, mainly), with damage and deaths next (ideally into a separate paragraph if there's enough info). Try and find some actual damage. Right now, it's mainly statistics. Were there any homes destroyed, for example? Mainly more info is needed. Good luck finding some.

Here's a link with a small bit of info. It doesn't state the storm directly, but it describes the flooding in the four corners area. Though there isn't much there, it provides a reference which could have more. It also gives an overall damage total; $10 million. Hurricanehink (talk) 02:53, 19 November 2006 (UTC)


The article is mostly about the impact in the southwest United States, which wasn't directly from Norma. Given we have publications that call it the "Labor Day Storm of 1970", there is precedent to using an alternative title. Although I wouldn't prefer that one exactly, I think the article should be moved and focused to something like 1970 Southwest United States floods. ♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 17:56, 17 July 2011 (UTC)
