Can You Date These Storm Pictures - Worse Than Sandy

Posted: 08/20/2014

As Club Historian, I am reaching out for help to identify a the storm shown in pictures (Click here:  Storm damaged was as bad or worse than Hurricane Sandy.  I believe the storm may be Hazel, Oct. 1954.  

However, to make things more confusing, three hurricanes struck the harbor in 1954.  The names and months are Carol in August, Edna in September and Hazel in October.   To Add to the confusion, two other hurricanes are also candidates.  They struck in 1960 (Donna) and 1976 (Belle). 

I am really stuck on this one and can use your help.  If you can contribute to the solution of this puzzle, please e-mail me at or call me on 908-601-1974.

Moorings are $30/ night which includes launch service. There are several marinas in Manhassett Bay (NYSC is next to Brewer's Capri). Anyone desiring a slip should contact marinas directly about availability.

NSYC is a very accommodating club and allows us use of their grill and kitchen. We will have a Pot Luck dinner on Sat night at the club and will work on planning some other activities - if you have any suggestions for activities please let me know. Further details and will be sent as they develop to those that sign up for the cruise.
