New England Hurricane
This hurricane hit with little warning, it killed 600 people, and $308 million in damage in the United States.
The winds are 80 to 100 mph were reported over much of eastern Connecticut, all of Rhode Island, and eastern Massachusetts. A gust of 130 mph was reported at Block Island, Rhode Island. While gusts of 100 to 125 mph occurred over much of the rest of the area.he immediate effect of this powerful hurricane was to decimate many Long Island communities in terms of human and economic losses, however, the long term effects linger today. The Hurricane created the Shinnecock Inlet and widened Moriches Inlet which, to this day, are changing the landscape of the south shore due to their influence on
the natural littoral sand transport. History has shown that these powerful storms are rare but do in fact occur with long-term frequency.

The cause of the hurricanes is it starts out as a region of thunderstorms called easterly waves that drift across the tropical oceans.
If the area of thunderstorms shows decreasing pressure, rotation circulation, and wind speeds greater than 23 mph and the
conditions are extremely favorable for development sea-surface temperatures 80 oF low pressure at
sea-level, and high pressure aloft, the maximum sustained winds may reach 74 mph. At this point the tropical storm will be called a hurricane.The effect is that more than 50 lives were lost on Long Island that day - 29 of them at or near Westhampton Beach. The bodies were laid out on the country club lawn in Westhampton later the next day. Total cost of the storm for Long Island was estimated to be $6.2 million, in 1938 prices, between Jones Inlet and Montauk Point. Total cost of the storm throughout the northeast in 1998 dollars would place the 1938 Hurricane as the 6th costliest storm of all time
esthampton, with 28 dead and 4 missing a month later, with at least 150 houses destroyed and a property loss of $2 million, was the worst hit of all the Long Island communities. A mile inland, the storm surge had caused over 6 feet of water to flood Main Street .There was 700 deaths,708 injured,4,500 homes,cottages,farms destroyed,15,000 damaged.26,000 destroyed automobiles and 20,000 miles of electrical power and telephone lines downed.

well the weather is that in 1938, a hurricane of astonishing force ravaged New England. Having gone to bed the night before to radio forecasts of scattered rain and fresh southerly winds, New Englanders woke on the 21st and went about their weekday routines. At least they did until the storm broke in mid-afternoon.e lowest pressure at the time of landfall occurred on the south side of Long Island, at Bellport, where a reading of 27.94 inches was recorded. Other low pressures included 28.00 inches in Middletown, Connecticut and 28.04 inches in Hartford, Connecticut. The barograph to the left was from the Western Union Experimental Lab at Water Mill, Long Island.

he strongest winds ever recorded in the region occurred at the Blue Hill Observatory with sustained winds of 121 mph and a peak gust of 186 mph. Sustained winds of 91 mph with a gust to 121 mph was reported on Block Island. Providence, Rhode Island recorded sustained winds of 100 mph with a gust to 125 mph.

How hurricanes form?
-THe deadly EFFECTS and HISTORY of hurricanes?
The effects of hurricanes are deadly.Like other hurricanes it will blow or destroys anything in its path.
It destroys roads and free was and transportation. It might kills loved ones. Hurricanes leaves its history
by destroying anyhing in its path.
Hurricane Katrina took place during August 29, 2005. In New Orelans 90% of the resedendts was evacuated.
Many who stayed in their houses in New Orelens had to swim to save thier lives.Hurricane Katrina formed
over the Atlantic ocean. Hurricane Katrina was almost 500 mi. wide. The winds were a 140mi per hour.

Hurricanes have an average speed of from 39 MPH-119 KPH. When
wind speed increases it makes the ocean's waves higher & bigger.
Higher waves occur in shallower water. The winds in these storms are
very dangeruos. So you can say you never want to be in a hurricane.
How are hurricanes caused? Hurricanes are formed over the ocean's surface. Water vapor is the main energy source for
hurricanes. And that water vapor is evaporated water from the ocean. And finally pressure builds up with the wind & cau-
ses a big twirling spiral.
For example I'm going to use hurricane Katrina. The Bush administration had to pay $10.5 Billion. All that money was
used for reconstruction & repairs. People say that this could exceed to $150 Billion. This hurricane is the costliest natural
disaster in U.S. history.
