Jay Barnes examined newspaper reports, National Weather Service records, and eyewitness descriptions to compile this chronicle. In some cases, stories of coastal residents and their hurricane adventures have been passed along like other down-east folklore and offer amazing accounts of destruction and survival. More than 200 photographs, maps, and illustrations document these hurricanes, showing the people, places, and unusual events associated with the storms. The book is loaded with meteorological facts, figures, and storm track maps that allow comparison of the numerous hurricanes that have affected the state. Barnes also discusses how hurricanes form and why they are named. Up-to-date information on hurricane preparedness and evacuation helps to make this absorbing history a valuable educational resource as well.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:exampleOfWork<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/id\/3857507316<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:genre<\/a> \"History<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:inLanguage<\/a> \"en<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:isSimilarTo<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/oclc\/607087594<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:name<\/a> \"North Carolina\'s hurricane history<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:productID<\/a> \"38580299<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:publication<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/38580299#PublicationEvent\/chapel_hill_university_of_north_carolina_press_1998<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:publisher<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/3857507316#Agent\/university_of_north_carolina_press<\/a>> ; # University of North Carolina Press<\/span>\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9780807847282<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9780807824160<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0wdrs:describedby<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/38580299<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.<\/div>
