Title: Weather Diary 5 September 1979
Concept: David - Could Have Been Worse.
Detail: The 1970's was a generally placid decade in terms of Atlantic hurricanes. Only Agnes in 1972 was a monumental storm. But as the decade ended, the Atlantic came alive with Hurricane David, a monster storm roaring out of the Caribbean. It lost much of its 150 mph punch, crossing the mountains of Haiti and Cuba, but regained a fair amount of its strength as it approached southern Florida, an area which has had relatively little experience with severe hurricanes in the last two decades. Still the storm gingerly slid along the Florida east coast and stayed onshore to make landfall in South Carolina and Georgia. Yet the question remains, had David regained its full punch, and hit Miami metropolitan area head on, would the years of preparation for a storm have been sabotaged by public apathy? The vast majority of the residents of coastal Florida, many are new arrivals, had never experienced hurricanes of any significant strength. In hurricanes, apathy kills, far more than the wind or the storm surge. As David moved north it weakened - but not that much. While officially downgraded to a tropical storm, it did produce 71 mph winds in Groton, CT and 78 mph gusts at Blue Hill, Massachusetts and on the windiest mountaintop in the world, Mt. Washington, NH, the anomometer whirled at 174 mph as David whizzed by.
