Hurricane History, Fourth
Edition, Updated with a Decade of New Storms from Isabel to Sandy
By Jay Barnes
This new edition charts the more than fifty great storms that have
battered the Tar Heel State from the colonial era through Irene in 2011 and
Superstorm Sandy in 2012, two of the costliest hurricanes on record. Drawing on
news reports, National Weather Service records, and eyewitness descriptions,
hurricane historian Jay Barnes emphasizes the importance of learning from this
extraordinary history as North Carolina prepares for the inevitable disastrous
storms to come. Featuring more than 200 photographs, maps, and illustrations,
this book offers amazing stories of destruction and survival. While some are
humorous and some tragic, all offer a unique perspective on the state's
unending vulnerability to these storms. (UNC Press)
