It’s Impossible To Forget This Horrific Flood That Went Down In Connecticut History

The weather in Connecticut can, at times, be a little extreme as far as temperatures, but we tend to be safe from most weather events. Hurricanes and tornadoes in Connecticut are relatively rare, and if we’re in the news for weather, it’s usually a nor’easter. But back in 1955, there was a horrific flood in Connecticut that resulted in 87 lives lost. The damage was catastrophic in several cities, including Putnam and Farmington. The property damage totaled more than $2 billion in today’s dollars. This was one of the worst weather events in Connecticut history and its impact will never be forgotten.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
