“The Perfect Storm” at 20

This Halloween I’ve read about more than a few shipwreck-themed horrors designed to scare children, young and old (here‘s my favorite). But hardly a scarier story can be found than that of the no-name Halloween storm immortalized in Sebastian Junger’s The Perfect Storm. On Friday, The Coast Guard Compass (the official USCG blog) published a twenty-year retrospective of the 1991 storm that focuses on the activities of the USCG Cutter Tamaroa. It’s well worth a read.

Many Thanks to Liz Fisher for sending this along! Happy Halloween all…
