Here is part of my post last year (1955) about Hurricane Diane that hit in 55. It was a doosie. I hope we are not in for such as bad as that!
1955 post: Hurricane Diane
Hurricane Diane was one of three hurricanes to hit North Carolina during the 1955 Atlantic hurricane season. Diane struck an area that had been hit by Hurricane Connie five days earlier. Diane was the costliest hurricane in United States history until it was surpassed by Hurricane Betsy in 1965, and was the sixth costliest U.S. hurricane of the 20th century
Here is a Connecticut street.
Here in McAdoo PA Hurricane Diane put the normally dry "Celebration Creek" riverbed well over its bounds and flooded out the business section of the town.
Here is actual 1955 news concerning it:
Hurricane Connie actually preceded Diane and was also quite damaging.
So, let us hope for the best. Good luck to any and all of you also in Earl’s path.
