Balancing act: Providence drowns

By
From page A4 | April 24, 2013 |

Providence, R.I. — the waters in the capital of Rhode Island are more than 13 feet deep. Several motorists literally drown in their cars. All 40 homes on Napatree Point between the Atlantic Ocean and Little Narragansett Bay were cleared from the land. Not a speck of habitation is left, except for the solid concrete stairs to what once was a beach club. In Massachusetts, the highest recorded wind speed in the history of the United States from a hurricane was measured at 186 mph. Over 600 people lost their lives and over 30,000 homes are either destroyed or severely damaged. Winds were so strong and sustained, the Empire State Building swayed. It has been estimated that 2 billion trees were knocked down in the forests of New York and New England.
