Today in History

Today is August 31st, 2021 and I bet you are wondering about what happened on this day in the many years that have passed. As we may know there is a hurricane going on in Louisiana and the surrounding areas but did you know that in 1954 Hurricane Carol was also around at this similar time? On this day specifically however was when Carol struck New England. The force of this hurricane killed at least 70 people and was known as the most costliest hurricane at the time. Pretty crazy that these similar events happen around the same date. With that being said however, one question remains. How often will this happen in the future?
