New Hampshire's Hurricane Logs Pop Up Every September (VIDEO)

Thursday 11/19/2020

The Great Hurricane of 1938 swept up through Vermont and even affected much of New Hampshire. Huge tracts of our state's forests were layed down by the storm. It was estimated that the September 21st hurricane damaged over 110,000 acres of forest in the White Mountains. In Concord NH hurricane logs were salvaged and placed in Turkey Pond to protect them from insect damage. From 1941 to 1943 a crew of women sawed into lumber 12 million board feet of lumber. Some logs sank and when condition are right each fall some of them bob up to just under the surface of the water. All still bearing the stamp of "US" on one end signifying they belonged to the US Government.
