On Nov. 25, 1950 a windstorm and the following day's floods swept across Berkshire County and knocked down trees, power and phone lines, washed out roads and caused New England $15 million in damage, estimated by the U.S. Department of the Interior at the time. 

The storm reached reported gusts of 80 miles an hour. More than 1,000 trees were uprooted on Mount Greylock and Notch Road, closed for winter, was blocked for two weeks. It was estimated that 250 trees were toppled in Pittsfield alone, many of them landing on homes or cars.
