Newly revised and updated, North Carolina's Hurricane History is a richly illustrated record of more than fifty hurricanes known to have struck the Tar Heel state from the days of the first European explorers through hurricanes Bertha and Fran in 1996. Jay Barnes examined newspaper reports, National Weather Service records, and eyewitness descriptions to compile this fascinating chronicle, which also features more than 200 photographs, maps, and illustrations.

Review: North Carolina's Hurricane History

User Review  - Corey - Goodreads

Informative but a bit dry and really needs to be updated to reflect the hurricanes through 2010 at least. The latest one is Floyd in 1999 so hearing it talk about that Hurricane being the worst ever is a bit odd in light of Katrina etc. Read full review
