The Columbus Day Storm happened on October 12, 1962. It originated in the Pacific Ocean and created havoc from northern California to southern British Columbia in Canada. It was the largest, most violent windstorm in the recorded history of the West Coast, at that time. Wind gusts were recorded at over 100 miles per hour in many areas. The storm demolished homes, barns, trees, vehicles, and many lives were lost.
The exhibit will be available for viewing Sat., Oct. 8 and Sat., Oct. 22. A program will be held on Oct. 22 at 2 p.m. The Board of Directors is looking for stories about that stormy day. If you were around during the storm, attend the program on the 22nd and share your story. You may also contact the Museum and provide your story and/or pictures at any time.
