Hurricane Bob Strikes Add Video

Hurricane Bob Strikes, This 27 minute 1991 documentary produced and directed by M.L.Baron who was in Hurricane Bob and saw first hand the destructive power of this Category 2 hurricane on Monday, August 19, 1991. Other footage provided by local citizens who contributed their videos for this production. This video was produced at Fairhaven/Acushnet Cablevision. Special thanks to Bob Cormier. Bob was the earliest known hurricane to impact SE New England. This was the first BIG test for the barrier on it's 25th anniversary of completion since 1966. Bobs name was retired in 1991. The most prominent landmark destroyed in Greater New Bedford was the Crow Island Tower. A newly constructed $35,000 boardwalk on the causeway to West Island was also destroyed. The boardwalk lasted less than 2 months. Underground utilities were put in place along the causeway to West Island after Bob. This video also looks back at hurricanes past. The last hurricane event before Bob was Hurricane Gloria on Friday Sept 27, 1985. From the MLBaron Historic Archives. http://www.westislandweather.com/
