Hurricane: The Ultimate Storm

| No Comments
hurricane.jpgHurricanes are the most destructive storms on earth. Noted weather expert Art Horn will present a multi-media presentation titled "Hurricane: The Ultimate Storm" at the Greenwich Library on Tuesday, May 6 at 11:00 AM in the Meeting Room. Hurricanes generate powerful winds, waves and torrential rains. When these storms threaten coastal areas, many people have been displaced for safety purposes

Throughout history, many have lost their lives due to the flooding caused by hurricanes. The Great Hurricane of 1938 cut a destructive swath across eastern Long Island, eastern Connecticut and Rhode Island. It is estimated that 682 people died and 57,000 homes were destroyed. Millions of dollars of damage resulted from this unexpected storm.

Yet, hurricanes may be beneficial by relieving drought conditions, carrying heat and energy away from the tropics and stabilizing temperatures world wide. Hurricanes contain an exorbitant amount of energy, which may be able to be tapped in the future.

Hurricane: The Ultimate Storm will be held in the Greenwich Library Meeting Room on Tuesday, May 6 at 11:00 AM. The event is free and open to the public. For more information, please call Carl White at 203-622-7948.
