Remembering the Ash Wednesday Storm of 1962

It’s been more than 50 years since the Ash Wednesday Storm of 1962 devastated parts of Hampton Roads. In fact, the Virginia Beach Oceanfront received some of the worst damage when strong waves broke the seawall and left the boardwalk in shambles. Take a look at these incredible pictures, courtesy of the City of Virginia Beach, as we reflect on the storm.
