Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"[A] wonderful book about hurricanes that have impacted the Tar Heel State. . . . A great book for native North Carolinians and transplants alike."--Southern Pines Pilot

"[This book] remains the only comprehensive history of hurricanes in the Tar Heel State, from the great storm of 1586. [This edition] adds the storms of the new millennium, including a long discussion of superstorm Sandy, which skirted our coast only to pound New York State and New Jersey."--Wilmington Star News

"This is a wonderful work of geography, history, and--for those who lived through some of these storms--maybe even a bit of nostalgia."--Durham Herald Sun

"Packed with information. . . . Examines the lives and communities affected by hurricanes and the growth that makes them more economically devastating. . . . An intense and emotional narrative."--Coastwatch

From The Critics
"Find out just how vulnerable North Carolina has been to these powerful storms."—Greg Fishel, WRAL-TV meteorologist
