Hurricane Irene Roared Through New England Leaving Destruction
In August 2011, the northeast braced for two major weather events in one week. Having an earthquake and hurricane in a five-day span is unheard of for states like Virginia, New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Vermont.
On this day, winds howled blowing down people, trees and power lines. No one along the eastern seaboard could escape Irene’s wrath. To see photos click here.
When it was over, Irene took at least 56 lives.
