"Speaking of Hurricanes"



The Hurricane of 1938 was on Sept. 9th. I was born on the 28th.. Which go me thinking. We had a another scare here in America the other day because of Hurricane Matthew. Me being around so long I am well prepared for these events.. But I was thinking. What was the first recorded event like this?.. Well guess what? Here it is.. It was called "The Great Hurricane of 1780"

The Great Hurricane of 1780 was the deadliest Atlantic hurricane in recorded history. Coming during a very active hurricane season, the storm formed on October 9 and struck Barbados the next day with winds possibly exceeding 200 mph. It then passed over several other islands, leaving mass destruction in its wake. Thousands of deaths were reported on each island, and more than 20,000 people had died by the time the storm dissipated.

Yuck!

We are forecast to have a medium rain season (summer) and 60% cyclones next autumn, starting early, I think. We are forecast to have eight cyclones form and four hit land.

The Great Hurricane of 1780 just goes to show that it is not all global warming! I remember one sailing ship was in a storm so bad off southern New Zealand that its sails were torn to shreds! They may have had rotten sails :P
