PBS video on the Great Hurricane of 1938

OVERVIEW: "As the storm made its way across the Atlantic and up the eastern seaboard, there was little warning. Radar had not been invented. The National Weather Bureau predicted it would blow itself out at North Carolina, but it didn't. No one had ever seen a storm like this.  Rhode Island fishermen, residents and vacationers recount what it was like to live through one of the greatest natural disasters recorded in North America."

Might be worth watching in light of Hurricane Irene's path at present...
