Samenvatting

North Carolina's Hurricane History charts the more than fifty great storms that have battered the Tar Heel State from the colonial era through Irene in 2011 and Superstorm Sandy in 2012, two of the costliest hurricanes on record. Drawing on news reports, National Weather Service records, and eyewitness descriptions, hurricane historian Jay Barnes emphasizes the importance of learning from this extraordinary history as North Carolina prepares for the inevitable disastrous storms to come. Featuring more than 200 photographs, maps, and illustrations, this book offers amazing stories of destruction and survival. While some are humorous and some tragic, all offer a unique perspective on the state's unending vulnerability to these storms.

Recensie(s)

[A] wonderful book about hurricanes that have impacted the Tar Heel State. . . . A great book for native North Carolinians and transplants alike.--Southern Pines Pilot [This book] remains the only comprehensive history of hurricanes in the Tar Heel State, from the great storm of 1586. [This edition] adds the storms of the new millennium, including a long discussion of superstorm Sandy, which skirted our coast only to pound New York State and New Jersey.--Wilmington Star News This is a wonderful work of geography, history, and--for those who lived through some of these storms--maybe even a bit of nostalgia.--Durham Herald Sun Packed with information. . . . Examines the lives and communities affected by hurricanes and the growth that makes them more economically devastating. . . . An intense and emotional narrative.--Coastwatch
