Delaware Archives Creates Virtual Exhibit on the Storm of March 1962

From the Delaware Public Archives Blog

The Delaware Public Archives is commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the Ash Wednesday Storm of 1962, a powerful Northeaster that affected the mid-Atlantic March 6th – 8th, with a virtual exhibit.

Among DPA’s holdings are many incredible historical documents, photographs and films that tell of tragedy and the perseverance of Delawareans to restore the state to its pre-storm condition. The mighty storm brought waves in excess of 40 feet that damaged property along Delaware’s Atlantic and Delaware Bay coasts. Post-storm aerial films  recoded by the State Police Commission survey the destruction of beaches, homes, businesses, roadways, and extensive inland flooding.
