The Hurricane of 1938

A significant memory for many of Center Moriches' older citizens is the 1938 hurricane.  This hurricane will never be forgotten because of the significant damage that it caused to the town and the experiences people had during it.  Some saw the first huge wave come over the beach and destroy buildings that were in its way, including the three story Clear View Hotel.  The water flooded roads all the way up to Main Street. This hurricane caused a lot of chaos and excitement in the Center Moriches area.
