The depression caused no damage and no deaths.

Meteorological History


On September 1, a tropical wave moved off the coast of Africa and began heading westward across the Atlantic Ocean. The wave was accompanied by a low-level circulation and a fairly well-organized area of convection. This convection soon dissipated, however, and the wave remained disorganized while moving to the west-northwest. The disorganization of the wave would last until September 7, when it acquired enough organization to be called Tropical Depression Seven. The depression was very short-lived, as strong vertical wind shear caused the depression to dissipate on September 8, while located about 850 miles southeast of the island of Bermuda.
