Remembering 1938's New England Hurricane

Charles C. W. Cooke over at NRO's The Corner posted this 10-minute film originally produced by the Works Project Administration's description of the 1938 New England Hurricane and its aftermath. That storm included winds clocked at nearly 200 mph. It was followed by severe flooding in many places. 57,000 homes were damaged and up to 800 people were killed.

The film provides perspective on the recent New England storm and, as Cooke points out, it also provides a reproof on all of the global warming scaremongers who are insisting that Hurricane Sandy "just had to be" caused by man-made climate change.
