48th Anniversary of Hurricane Camille

This August marks the 48th anniversary of Hurricane Camille.  We mostly think of hurricanes having an impact on the coastline but they do indeed have a far reach.  In the Clarion Ledger article below you can see reports from both the Columbia vicinity and, way upstate, Corinth about Hurricane Camille’s effect on historic places in those towns.

  1. Far reach indeed! Camille caused devastating flooding and several deaths in Rockbridge County, Virginia, where I currently live.
