Cape Cod Storms Winter Talk

Date: February 3, 2024
Time: 1 p.m.
Meeting Place: Harwich Community Center
Leader: Don Wilding
Price: 5

Join local author and HCT walk leader Don Wilding as he recounts the Cape’s most severe weather events and their lasting impacts.

Listen to the tales of hurricanes, nor’easters, and blizzards that have literally shaped Cape Cod over the past century, molding the beaches, displacing homes, and flooding coastal communities with their strong winds and tidal surges.

Storms discussed will include the infamous “Portland Gale” of 1898, the “Long Island Express” Hurricane of 1938, the benchmark “Blizzard of 1978”, Hurricane Bob in 1991, and others.

Admission for this talk is $5 payable at the door.
