Hurricane Carol Pictures 1954, Duxbury Ma

7 posts in this topic

We've been going through my grandfather's slides and getting them digitally scanned. We came across some cool Hurricane Carol photos from Duxbury Ma. Many of the locations where the pictures are, are now mulit-million dollar houses. I'm thinking the damage would be much worse now.

My grandfather owned 10 acres on Saquish beach and sold them after carol. You can see the breach picture of how close Duxbury beach came to be wiped out of existence. My grandfather promptly sold his acreage on Saquish beach for pennies on the dollar. The current going rate on Saquish beach is $1million per acre. Thanks Grampy.

I also included a couple of winter photos so you can see just what a real winter looks like.





We think this a ship that grounded on Duxbury beach and they're attempting to remove crewmembers.



Duxbury beach nearly gone.


Finally some winter pictures of what a real winter looks like

Carol,Edna,Hazel. Within 2 months I experienced 3 full blown hurricanes. I was going on 8, I'm going on 66 now. It hasn't happened since 1954 in the NE.

      Meteorological summer is upon us and already looking at a hot weekend coming up as well as the third tropical storm of the year! 
      Within the next ten to fourteen days the models are pointing towards two tropical cyclones potentially impacting the East Coast of the US.  Models differ on development at this time, but there is enough support from the CMC and EURO and GFS to suggest that development is possible southeast of the current 91L disturbance track sometime around Wednesday or Thursday of next week.  Stay tuned!

      I recently wrote an article on the implications of a category 6 rank being added to the hurican scale. I wanted to get more input, however. Please vote on my poll and leave any comments here or on the website.

      I personally think November 2015 will be warmer than average, CFS has strongly been trending warmer than average since August. The CanSIPS model has also been trending warmer than average. Precipitation forecasts from CanSIPs and CFS also analyze above average. Now the Jamstec model is a bit different. It predicts a warmer than average November for areas east of the MS river excluding IL,WI, and MN. But it then predicts a cooler than average  November for areas west of the MS river, east of the Rockies. That is the September run and the October run should come in in a couple of days. I do think our "Second Tornado Season", could be good. The last El Nino analogs I found have had Late Fall-Early Winter tornado outbreaks. This next list of outbreaks all happened in El Nino conditions in November. November 22-24, 2004, 2002 Veteran's Day Outbreak, 1987 Arklatex tornado outbreak, and so on.
