Legendary Columbus Day Storm

"Monday marked the 47 year anniversary of the most devastating storm to strike the Pacific Northwest in the 20th Century.

Aptly dubbed the "Columbus Day Storm", the storm struck with great fury on Oct. 12, 1962, pummeling many areas with well over 100 mph wind gusts and causing catastrophic damage -- mainly across Oregon, but Washington wasn't necessarily left off the hook."

Check out the article at, it has some really interesting information about this infamous storm that hit Oregon 47 years ago.
