Hurricanes and the Middle Atlantic States

By Rick Schwartz, 1955-

Read about the Hurricane Sandy Big Ones that have affected the Mid-Atlantic region. Hurricanes and the Middle Atlantic States is the first book that examines the 400-year recorded hurricane history of the region. It offers chronological profiles of significant storms, from Jamestown to the present. Also included are more than 200 black and white photographs--many appearing in print for the first time. The book contains numerous track maps. Human interest stories, as well as an examination of the patterns, characteristics, quirks and dangers of Mid-Atlantic hurricanes, make this a must-have for those living in the region. It is also valuable to anyone interested in the nation's hurricane history. The book focuses on Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Virginia, as well as the New York City and Washington, D.C., metropolitan areas. Residents from neighboring states will find abundant material. And the many human interest stories have universal appeal! Hurricanes and the Middle Atlantic States contains a collection of unforgettable encounters--tales gleaned from articles and books, private journals and interviews. It tells of the "big ones"--unforgettable storms. Tropical cyclones like Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee (and worse) will visit in coming years. Even a single idea to improve safety or protect property developed as a result of the material in this book would make it a valuable bargain. Discovery of the Mid-Atlantic region's extensive hurricane history starts here! (Favorable reviews have appeared in the April 2008 issue of Choice Magazine, the April 2008 issue of the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society and the May-June 2008 issue of Weatherwise Magazine.)
