    FAIRHAVEN CASUALTIES in 1938 HURRICANE TOOK BOTH YOUNG AND OLD AND THE HEROIC Eighty years has left little evidence of one of the most destructive weather events in New England history. On Wednesday - September 21, 1938 a hurricane so brutal that its tidal surge registered as a major earthquake on a Richter scale at Fordham State University in New York. Wind gusts from 173 to 186 MPH took the area by surprise while kids were just getting out of school. 500 summer cottages were instantly obliterated within minutes as a forty-foot wave with ten feet of froth above that wiped out the entire coastal village of Misquamicut RI. Fairhaven's death toll could have been much higher if not for summer residents that left their seaside cottages for the season a few weeks prior. In this small clip from "A Wind To Shake The World" contains the complete list of Fairhaven casualites.

    Edgewater Marsh Area March 29 2018 10AM West Island Weather Station drone operations. Rising tide cycles are increasing at an alarming rate where Sconticut Neck could become an island itself requiring a causeway. A federal climate science assessment recently concluded that a rise in sea level of one to four feet within a century is likely. Ask any local, they are taking notice. This video was taken at low tide. A recent video clip taken down the end of Edgewater St - the necks lowest point - illustrates how low this area already is at sea level

    SUNRISE at The West Island State Reservation Friday - April 27, 2018 at 558AM. The temperature was 48.3 with a gentle breeze out of the west-southwest at 1.5MPH. The humidity was 92%. The ocean in Buzzards Bay read 50.5 degrees. We sent our drone up slowly to 400ft aiming east to Falmouth as the sun came up through some broken overcast. Some minor weather action passing through, however Summer like heat is expected to make headlines next week. ML's Note: 15 Years ago today, Buzzards Bay, West Island and Mattapoisett would soon be devasted by a major oil spill. Birds and wildlife would die in front of helpless onlookers along the shore. My first person reflection and story here: http://www.westislandweather.com/oilspill2003.htm
