A Terrifying, Deadly Storm Struck Maine In 1954 And No One Saw It Coming
In 1954, two hurricanes barreled into New England. The result was some of the strongest winds and damage ever seen in the area. Maine was one of the hardest hit states and it suffered millions of dollars in damage along with the loss of lives.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life.

Can you imagine the fear that must have been felt as these storms came to shore? The people of Maine are hardworking, and many continued their life on lobster boats and near the coastline. Once it was clear that Carol and Edna were serious, there was nothing that could be done. Mainers were forced to wait out the storms and assess the damage once they had passed.
Were you in Maine during Carol or Edna? We’d love to hear about your experience.
