A Terrifying, Deadly Tropical Storm Struck Alaska In 1977 And No One Saw It Coming
The four large volcanic islands in Alaska and 55 smaller islands in both Alaska and Russia that make up the Aleutian Chain are often times the subject of some pretty gnarly storms. With some of the westernmost points in the United States, this isolated region marks as a dividing line between the Bering Sea to the north and the Pacific Ocean to the south.
With a somewhat mild and moderate climate filled with relentless amounts of rainfall, it’s no surprise that this area is the perfect melting pot for a turbulent storm to start brewing. This one particular storm from 1977, however, will never be able to escape our memory.
For a closer look at just how dangerous and deadly the Bering Sea can be, check out this exhilarating YouTube footage below from Discovery’s Deadliest Catch which shows just how truly unforgiving the rough and tumble waters can be. What a terrifying situation to be in, holy smokes! Arctic storms really are a force to be reckoned with.
