Seeing the devastating hurricane that pounded southeastern Texas, brings to mind some of the storms that have impacted our neck of the woods. The New England Hurricane of 1938 claimed the lives of 600 people before exiting the northeastern coastal region. Both Hurricane Carol and Hurricane Edna delivered copious amounts of rain and high winds in 1954 producing damage throughout the area. Edna came with destructive wind gusts up to 120mph. More recently, Irene made her ninth landfall near Coney Island, resulting in the Hudson flooding and storm surge violently pushing forward until it was underneath the Boardwalk, and further inland in some places.
