It has been nearly a year since Superstorm Sandy ripped through much of the northeastern United States. But it was 75 years ago when the Great New England Hurricane of 1938 devastated large areas of the same area. Now, Tim Doggett and Robert Zalisk of AIR Worldwide have written a report, “Northeast Hurricanes—And Recalling The Great New England Hurricane of 1938,” that reviews the devastation caused by what the authors characterize as the most powerful hurricane of the 20th Century.

Among other things, the authors compare the two storms, examine the ability to forecast their frequency, and contend that for all the extensive storm surge damage caused by Sandy, the hurricane of 1938 was a more powerful storm – and that even more powerful storms have occurred in the more distant past.
