Hurricane Hazel dates back 65 years: Hurricane Hazel walk, Oct. 12, 2019; Hurricane Hazel talk, Oct. 15, 2019
As I’ve noted at a previous post, the hurricane of 1954 were preceded by extreme winter storms in March 1952. As we know, in the current era extreme weather events affecting shorelines worldwide are becoming increasingly more frequent.
