A Terrifying, Deadly Storm Struck Connecticut In 1978… And No One Saw It Coming

The Blizzard of 1978 goes down in Connecticut’s history as one of the worst storms to hit the state, and was the worst storm since 1888, nearly a hundred years before! What started as a light flurry of snow around noon developed into a statewide crippling blizzard that lasted thirty hours. The news reported the storm was coming, but nobody predicted the affect it would have on our little state.

You can see some of the original news footage from around the New England area here, and catch the initial reactions and panic to the storm as it was developing in real time.

How well do you remember this storm?
