The Perfect Storm

LoveReading View on The Perfect Storm

It was a ‘perfect’ storm- perfect, meteorologically, in that it could not be worse. It found its terrible heart 500 miles off the coast of Massachusetts, coming to fruition in 120 mile-an-hour winds and ten-storey waves. And into its path wandered the fishing boat Andrea Gail and her six-man crew.


The Perfect Storm Synopsis

The 'perfect storm' is a once-in-a-hundred-years combination: a high pressure system from the Great Lakes, running into storm winds over an Atlantic island - Sable Island - and colliding with a weather system from the Caribbean: Hurricane Grace. This work presents the story of that storm.

The Perfect Storm Press Reviews
