Northeast Historic Film: The Worst Storm Ever. Hurricanes Carol and Edna came to Maine in 1954, within ten days of one another. Carol was so severe, and caused so much damage that the name "Carol" was retired for Atlantic storms - it will never be used again. In Maine, the hurricane killed three people, and caused damage totaling $10 million,1954 USD, $74.9 million 2006 USD. Ten days later Hurricane Edna caused $15 million, 1954 USD, $112 million 2006 USD. In New England these two storms destroyed 3500 cars, 3000 boats. Earle Fenderson was a film director at WGAN-TV (currently named WGME-TV/Portland), and a film projectionist. Support our northern New England moving image archive: oldfilm.org
