Description
Nearly 600 drowned, burned, or killed from debris driven by a 183 mph wind; almost 9,000 houses flooded or smashed to splinters; even stone buildings swept away by the 15-foot high wall of water known as a "storm surge." In the days before radar and flying meteorological labs, hurricanes could strengthen and strike with little or no warning. That's what happened to the residents of New England on September 21, 1938. Originally telecast on the acclaimed PBS series The American Experience, this documentary blends commentary from historians and meteorologists, interviews with storm survivors, and archival film footage and photographs. ~ Steve Blackburn, Rovi
