Hurricane Program at Otis Library

Seventy years ago this September one of the worst hurricanes hit the Northeastern seaboard. They called it the Long Island Express. The Otis Library will be highlighting the anniversary of the '38 Hurricane with a program by Meteorologist Art Horn. He will be presenting the program "Hurricane: The Ultimate Storm". It is guaranteed to be an exciting program.

To reserve your spot for this program, please call 889-2365 x100.

PBS has an excellent website dedicated to the stories of the victims and a Teacher's Guide if anyone was interested in doing that as a lesson plan.

They also have some great pictures on the site of the Connecticut State Library.

If you have any pictures or stories about the Norwich, CT area during or after the '38 Hurricane that you would like to share or give to the library we would be interested in hearing from you.

These pictures are great! I recently had the opportunity to visit your Genealogy section and was amazed by the extent of your local history collection.
