Case Study:  Super Storm 1993

Case Study: Super Storm 1993

One of the most intense nor'eaters to ever strike the Eastern United States did so in the second week of March, 1993. Record low pressures, wind speeds, low temperatures and snowfall amounts were more than enough for this storm to gain the status of "Storm of the Century" even during its existence. Indeed, this storm was monumental, killing over 250 people and cancelling 25% of the United States' flights for two days. The purpose of this case study is to provide background on this storm, using surface maps and satellite images to demonstrate its full scope.
