A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

From the Blizzard of 1888 to the Great Appalachian Storm of 1950, this book reveals the majesty and terror of true superstorms in the mid-Atlantic and New England. Not just for weather buffs (though filled with meteorological details), this book is for anyone who is fascinated by breathtaking accounts of natural forces at their most powerful. Seven Superstorms of the Northeast takes readers on a wild ride through some of the region's historically most destructive storms -- in a pre-Weather Channel, pre-satellite, pre-Doppler-radar world. The book's title stems from seven monster storms including the blizzards of 1888, 1899, and 1914, the Snow Cloudburst of 1947, the Great Appalachian southeaster of 1950, and the hurricanes of 1938 and 1944. Sprinkled around the jaw-dropping accounts of these superstorms are stories of lesser, but no less impressive, storms such as the two August hurricanes of 1893 and other storms of the winter of 1913-1914.

This is a book where storms become legends.

Page de garde:

Those who have known terrifying weather (or just watched it on the news channels) may think that the worst storms -- the over-hyped "superstorms" or the much-abused epithet "storms of the century" -- have occurred in recent memory. But meteorological history, archival data and dramatic eyewitness accounts make it clear that true storms of historical proportion occurred in the first half of the 20th century and the late 19th century. This book encompasses both the science and drama of superstorms and other severe weather tempests. Seven Superstorms is a book for weather buffs, filled with analyses of storms and interwoven with fascinating meteorological details and facts. But this is also book for anyone who finds it impossible to turn away from breathtaking accounts of natural forces at their most powerful. Blizzards, hurricanes, northeasters and compelling stories are illustrated with dozens of historical weather maps and photographs, showing weather in all its raging fury and beauty. From the turbulent waters of Long Island Sound to Providence to Boston, from New York City to Atlantic City, from the Chesapeake Bay to Pittsburgh, the author explores the full tragedy of great storms. And he shares his awe, revealing, in the words of poet Gerald Hopkins, that they are "charged with the grandeur of God."
