Hurricane Juan: The Story of A Storm

by Herald Halifax

Nimbus Publishing | March 15, 2011 | Trade Paperback

Hurricane Juan: The Story of A Storm is rated 5 out of 5 by 2.
At 12:10 a.m. on Monday, September 29, 2003, the worst storm to hit Nova Scotia in more than a century made landfall near Shad Bay. It took a few hours for hurricane Juan to tear across the province, but it left a trail of devastation in its wake. Juan killed two people, leveled homes, ripped apart the province's electricity grid and turned forests into splinters. It carried a terrible punch-winds gusted up to 175 kilometres per hour-and it has left a mark that won't soon be erased. The reporters and photographers of The Chronicle-Herald documented the storm, the damage, the tragedies, the struggle to cop and the recovery effort. The paper served as a vital lifeline to the hundreds of thousands of Nova Scotians without power. This book-the story of Juan-is built around the best of that coverage.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Book I purchased this book for a friend who lives outside the city and never really saw the damage Juan caused. I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone who has friends who lived in N.S. before the hurricane and as a piece of history for anyone with small children or without. The pictures in this book really capture the days and weeks that followed. The book was well written and the dedication to the lives lost brought tears to my eyes. What a lovely way to remember those innocent victims.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great keepsake An apt account of the storm that shocked Nova Scotia. Great photos and a nice cross-section of news stories and first-hand accounts about the event. Senisitive treatment of the tragic deaths. Proceeds of the sale go to the Red Cross.
