Here are some photos of the Providence, RI and Pawtucket, RI taken the day after the Hurricane of ’38 also known as The Great New England Hurricane. This hurricane was estimated to have killed 682 people and caused property losses of 4.7 billion when calculated in damage based on 2016 dollars ( $306 million in 1938). We can all look forward to the pot boiling more furiously and more hurricanes as climate change becomes greater.

While searching for info, I found this link on the Hurricane of ’38 which really sums up the day.
Here are some old photos of the Providence, RI area that I have donated to NOAA.
With the predictions about the oceans rising and the contested climate change, I believe that we will be seeing more great hurricanes in our lifetime.
