The 1938 Great New England Hurricane

This startling Works Project Administration video of the 1938 New England Hurricane, which raged at “almost 200mph,” and caused should give those who have absurdly sought to blame Sandy on “climate change” some pause for thought. (Hat tip to Anthony Watts.)

The hurricane killed up to 800 people, and damaged or destroyed over 57,000 homes. As New England hurricanes go, it was only outdone by the Great Colonial Hurricane in 1635, which was a big year for carbon emissions.
