West Coast Hurricane: The Columbus Day Storm @ Bethany Library Annex
Sep 26 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm

The Columbus Day Storm was an extra-tropical cyclone (equivalent to a Category 3 hurricane) that struck the West Coast in October, 1962, causing incredible devastation. It is considered the greatest natural disaster to hit the Pacific Northwest region in the 20th Century. There are countless dramatic stories associated with the Columbus Day Storm as well as compelling images of its destruction and the reconstruction that followed.

On Thursday, September 26 at 6:30pm, author and historian Sig Unander explores what factors combined to produce the “perfect storm.” He will also share personal stories of people who lived through it and examine what changed as a result.

Ages 16 & up.
