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.
