Realities of New England Hurricanes and Severe Thunderstorms and Tornadoes

Come listen to Glenn Field discuss Hurricanes, Thunderstorms, and Tornadoes in New England. Glenn is Warning Coordination Meteorologist (WCM) for the National Weather Service (NWS) Forecast Office. 

The Realities of New England Hurricanes


New England hurricanes are very different from the kind of hurricanes that you've read about or that strike Florida or the Caribbean.  You will learn why the structure is different and thus, how our safety and preparedness rules are different in some ways.  People of my generation remember Hurricane Gloria in 1985 and Hurricane Bob in 1991...and we think those were 'real' hurricanes.  However, this sense of reality is warped, since it has now been 64 years since the last major hurricane (Carol) that struck New England.  This presentation will take you back to the days of the 1938 Hurricane, Connie, Diane, Carol, etc. and show what a true hurricane really can do!

 

 

Severe Thunderstorms and Tornadoes   

Severe thunderstorms and tornadoes occur in New England every year, but are most prevalent from May through August.  A major downburst hit Brockton/Whitman/Abington in 1996 with 104 mph winds measured in Whitman.  Although major tornadoes are infrequent, they have occurred (Worcester, MA - 1953; Windsor Locks, CT - 1979; Hampden, CT - 1989;  Great Barrington, MA - 1995, Springfield/Monson, MA – 2011, etc.) and we need to know what to do if they do occur.  This presentation will discuss lightning, wind, hail, and tornadoes -- the main threats from severe thunderstorms -- and will show examples of how we differentiate between downburst/microburst damage and the damage caused by a tornado.
