Old photographs tell the story of the worst storm in Delaware's recorded history, the Storm of '62. The three-day nor'easter pounded the coast March 6-8 causing what would now be hundreds of millions of dollars in damage and claiming seven lives in Delaware and a total of 40 lives on the East Coast.
