Did you take any photos or videos of the affects of Superstorm Sandy on Newport County? The Newport Historical Society wants them!
The Newport Historical Society posted on its Facebook page:
The Newport Historical Society is looking to collect media of Hurricane Sandy that the community has captured in Newport County. In this era of prevalent, but often unpreserved, digital media we’d like to be certain to document the “Frankenstorm.”
We are specifically looking for photographs and videos of any hurricane preparations, the storm itself, and its aftermath, including boarding up windows, high wind and surf, fallen trees, damage and debris. As our collection of citizen’s snapshots of past hurricanes is now used to tell the stories of these major events, your images can be used by future scholars and school-children!
Digital media can be submitted to the historical society by emailing them to at firstname.lastname@example.org Qualifying photos will be posted on their Facebook page.
All submissions will be presented to the Newport Historical Society Collections Committee to be placed into the permanent collections. Donations should include rights of use.
