Hurricane Carol came to visit 66 years ago tomorrow – with Edna right on her heels

By Dean Shalhoup - Senior Staff Writer | Aug 29, 2020
As they had done less than two weeks earlier, Greater Nashua residents were preparing for a hurricane on Sept. 11, 1954, that was named Edna. Damage and disruptions weren't as serious as caused by Hurricane Carol on Aug. 31.
A feature story on Hurricane Carol, written by the late Telegraph reporter and photographer Mike Shalhoup, appeared in the Telegraph in 1999 as part of the newspaper's century series. Shalhoup also took the photo that ran the day after the hurricane struck. These cars were damaged by falling trees in the city's Millyard.
