    On the night of September 20, 1938, the news on the radio was full of Hitler's pending invasion of Czechoslovakia. Severe weather wasn't mentioned; only light rain was forecast for the following day. In a matter of hours, however, a hurricane of unprecedented force would tear through one of the wealthiest and most populated stretches of coastline in America, obliterating communities from Long Island to Providence, destroying entire fishing fleets from Montauk to Narragansett Bay.

    Overall

    Excellent accounts of the 1938 storm. Being from the area of Long Island, New York that was impacted by this storm, I can vouch that what I "read" is a thorough description of the fierce fury brought forth to the land and people in its way. Many personal stories woven into a well managed chronology of the event.

  • Rising Tide: The Great Mississippi Flood of 1927 and How It Changed America

    An American epic of science, politics, race, honor, high society, and the Mississippi River, Rising Tide tells the riveting and nearly forgotten story of the greatest natural disaster this country has ever known, the Mississippi flood of 1927. The river inundated the homes of nearly one million people, helped elect Huey Long governor and made Herbert Hoover president, drove hundreds of thousands of blacks north, and transformed American society and politics forever.

    Overall

    Well told story of the issues of the 1920's handling of New Orleans flood management had me comparing the results to the outcomes we saw with Katrina. Good background of Louisiana political arena that seems to have a core value much the same today as the period this book describes.
