Flooding at Assabet Mills from Hurricane Carol - 1954.
The hurricane moved ashore in Connecticut shortly after high tide on August 31, producing a storm surge of 10â€“15 ft and winds of over 115 mph. Widespread areas were left without power from eastern Connecticut to southern Massachusetts. Digital Equipment occupied the mills at this time. DEC employees filled several thousand sandbags to build a dam across the courtyard to protect the buildings that contained the production equipment.
