The 1938 Hurricane

The 1938 Hurricane produced a massive surge and storm tide that exceeded 10 feet from near New York City east to near New Bedford, Massachusetts. Although the storm made landfall as a category-1 hurricane, it packed category-3 winds less than 12 hours before landfall on Long Island.

This is the first of five maps depicting historic storms that generated storm surge that affected the New York City area.
