Atlantic Canada’s Greatest Storms

  Author:   Daniel Soucoup    
  Publisher:  Nimbus Publishing Limited

Where there’s a storm, there’s a story, and over the centuries Atlantic Canada has experienced more than its fair share of weather-related disasters. Atlantic Canada’s Greatest Storms chronicles many of the most dramatic and tragic storms that have struck the east coast, from 1745’s Grand Armada Tragedy to 2017’s Ice Storm.

In this accessible narrative, author Dan Soucoup recounts the winter blizzards, floods, tornadoes—and even tsunamis—that have created havoc in Atlantic Canada. From the great hurricanes of the North Atlantic—including the 1775 Independence Hurricane, the Saxby Gale in 1869, and Hurricane Igor in 2010—to the terrifying series of blizzards in 1905 (The Year of the Deep Snow), which left passenger trains stranded for days in the Annapolis Valley, and Newfoundland’s 1929 tsunami, which devastated the Burin Peninsula, striking dozens of coastal communities and carrying people and homes out to sea.

Features 25 black and white images.
