  1. Yep, and his other works too.
  2. No one knows how common the 1821 hurricane occurs. It could be a 200 year storm or 500 year storm or more. 6 years earlier in 1815 a hurricane makes landfall in Suffolk County with a track and intensity very similar to the 1938 hurricane as noted by David Ludlum. A category 3 hurricane making landfall in the center of long Island is probably more likely to occur than a category 3 directly over New York City or Nassau County.
  3. Yes, is caused a lot of structural damage. Maybe it maintained it's strength the same way hazel did. I found some of the original newspaper articles of the hurricane for New York City. Links are here: New-York evening post., September 04, 1821, Page 2, Image 2 New-York evening post., September 05, 1821, Page 2, Image 2
  4. The hurricane of September 1821 was estimated to have been a category 4 when it made landfall at Cape May New Jersey and a category 3 when it made a direct hit on New York City. It caused an incredible amount of damage there. The 1821 hurricane was probably the equivalent of the 1938 hurricane but a lot further west. Maybe someone could post a link to the newspaper articles from that time. About 10 years ago I found the newspaper articles from that time and it was definitely interesting reading through the type of damage the hurricane caused.
  5. I was 13 at the time but I do remember damage everywhere in Lynbrook in 1998 from the tornado. I don't think we've had a thunderstorm like that since then.
