1938 Hurricane subject of presentation at PSU

August 28th, 2013 by Tim

Depending on where a person lived, it was the “New England Hurricane,” the “Yankee Clipper” or the “Long Island Express.” Regardless of name, the storm that came ashore in the northeastern United States in September of 1938 wreaked havoc from New Jersey to Vermont and into Quebec.

The storm, its impact and its legacy are the subject of a three-part community education series presented by WMUR-TV. The series comes to Plymouth State University Tuesday, September 17, at 7 p.m. in the PSU Savage Welcome and Ice Arena. Co-sponsored by Plymouth State University, the program is free and open to the public but seating is limited.

Among the presenters at Plymouth State is Dr. Lourdes Aviles, a faculty members in PSU’s Department of Atmospheric Sciences. Aviles’ new book, Taken by Storm, 1938: A Social and Meteorological History of the Great New England Hurricane, will be published this fall.

WMUR will present similar programs on Monday September 16 at Cooperative Middle School, Stratham, N.H. (in partnership with the Exeter Historical Society), and Wednesday, September 18 at Manchester West High School (in partnership with the Manchester Historical Association).
