The New England hurricane of 1938 uprooted or broke off vast numbers of trees in watersheds of the Connecticut and Merrimack Rivers. Annual flow in both rivers increased about 5 inches during the first year after the hurricane. Another 5 inches of increased flow ran off at diminishing rates during the next two or three years. At least half of these flow increases occurred in July, August, and September when streams normally are at the lowest levels of the year. There was no evidence of increased flow five years after the hurricane when forest regrowth was well underway.
