DISCUSSION: As Halloween 2016 dawns on people all over the world, we are reminded of the ferocity of the "Perfect Storm" which rapidly developed during the last couple of days of October 1991. That being said, the impacts from this powerful hybrid-type low pressure system were pronounced based on the fact that many people lost their homes (and in some cases their lives). In addition, other consequences of this major event included major coastal flooding and major damage to infrastructure (particularly along the New England coastline).
