Hello to all..
As mentioned on the Saturday September 21st, 2013 VoIP Hurricane Net, 9/21/13 marked the 75th Anniversary of the Great Hurricane of 1938 affecting the Northeast United States/New England region. The National Weather Service Offices in Taunton Massachusetts and Brokhaven New York have put together a web page on the Great Hurricane of 1938. The information can be seen on the following links:
NWS Taunton MA Great Hurricane of 1938 web page:
NWS Brookhaven NY Great Hurricane of 1938 web page:
The links have a plethora of information from meteorological data to storm maps, photos of damage, media stories, commemorative events and much more. The Great Hurricane of 1938 is a benchmark that New England/Northeast hurricanes are measured and remains one of the most catastrophic hurricanes to have ever hit New England and the Northeast US and is historical nationally for the damage caused to this region. Please take time to check out these web pages as a reminder of what can happen in the Northeast or elsewhere across the Atlantic and Gulf regions during hurricane season.
