June 17th, 2022

The Dare County Library and the Outer Banks History Center are offering a virtual program commemorating the 60th anniversary of the Ash Wednesday Storm on Tuesday, June 21, at 12 p.m.

The 1962 Ash Wednesday Storm was one of the most destructive storms in North Carolina history, causing more than $234 million in damage and destroying approximately 1,800 dwellings.

The archival collections at the OBHC include numerous photographs, oral histories, historical documents, and publications related to the storm.

Join archivist Samantha Crisp for an exploration of these materials, and learn the story of what many consider to be the most harrowing event in Dare County’s modern history. This program will be presented virtually via Zoom.
