Much of the sheathing was torn orT by Carol.

All the sheathing that was left was ripped oil by yesterday's sale force winds before the structure itself collapsed. CAPE Continued from the First Page storm was starting all over again. The airport here, largest on the Cape, was under more than a foot of water. Power was flickering and more than a dozen riersons were stranded in the administration building 6 at 4:30 p. when Edna's back lash picked up.

This community experienced the sensation of having the eye of the hurricane pass over it. For 45 minutes, starting at 3:15 p. sr.ras cleared, the sun came out, and the only remainder of the storm that had passed were gales. Less than an hour later, skies darkened again and the winds whipped up to hurricane pitch. The 10-foot antenna atop Northeast Airlines Control Tower at the airfield here toppled in the backlash winds.

More than 25 planes, most of them large DC-3s, along with smaller aircraft, were in Quon-set-type metal huts at the edge of the field. No hangars were reported damaged Among those stranded at the airport were David Jones, 19, nf Bearse road, and Norman Caswell, 19, of Locust st, both of this town. 6 i sophistication from the First Page ripped through the roof into the adjoining dining room where they were seated. Its power knocked out by the hurricane, its operating room useless and an adjoining sterilizing room wrecked, the hospital was hopelessly crippled. Dorothy Smith, 57, superintendent of nurses, said it would take two or three days at least to restore facilities.

The 12 babies represented all the patients. When the power went out, nurses quickly transferred the children to a section lighted by age emergency equipment and then arranged to have them taken nome.
