A Terrifying, Deadly Storm Struck Rhode Island In 1938 And No One Saw It Coming

Anyone that’s lived in Rhode Island long enough knows that we’ve seen some pretty intense storms over the years. From the blizzard of 78, to Hurricane Irene in 2011, every decade brings at least one incident of epic and devastating weather. While all New Englanders have been through a few rough weather patches, few storms compare to this infamous hurricane that struck the coastal states in the 1930s.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
