Pages of History: Storm strands residents

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, November 1950.

Skies were clearing over Del Norte County yesterday while losses and damages were still being tallied following one of the worst storms to hit Del Norte county since 1883. Estimates of the damage toll were still mounting here and some observers predicted it would surpass the million dollar mark.

The storm, isolating Crescent City and Del Norte County when roads were blocked by floods, slides, and washed away road sections, brought a state of emergency to Del Norte County, with local Red Cross, churches and the county emergency communications systems into play.
