Sudden Sea
Sudden Sea: The Great Hurricane of 1938 | R.A. Scotti
2 posts | 1 read | 9 to read
The massive destruction wreaked by the Hurricane of 1938 dwarfed that of the Chicago Fire, the San Francisco Earthquake, and the Mississippi floods of 1927, making the storm the worst natural disaster in U.S. history. Now, R.A. Scotti tells the story.

Another pick for #disasters. This one tells the story of the category 5 hurricane that slammed into Long Island and the New England coast without warning in 1938, and the devastation that it wrought. I grew up and still live in the area of impact and I remember hearing my grandparents talk about this storm. The author uses real accounts from survivors to tell the tale. Great read.

In my TBR pile. Unfortunately this topic is trending now. 🙁 Barbuda, Dominica, Puerto Rico, Florida, Houston, St. Maarten all wish this was not a recent trend. Harvey, Irma and Maria were too much.
