Top 12 - New England Hurricanes

Now that the 2011 hurricane season has officially started, we need to be paying closer attention to the tropics, the source of all (almost all?) hurricanes. The good news is that Cape Cod, and the whole of New England, only gets a few - and they tend to be fairly weak by the time they get here. Ocassionally, however, a powerful storm comes up the coast and hammers New England.

The Cape Codder ran a story they titled "the Dirty Dozen of New England Hurricanes".  Go to the Cape Codder website and check out the story. The last 2 of the Dirty Dozen were Gloria (1985) and Bob (1991). Some folks believe that we're 'due'. Ugh!
