Chesapeake Bay Hurricanes Are the Subject of Historical Society Talk

Hurricanes, cookies, and power generators will all come together on April 28 at the HSTC Auditorium in Easton when the Talbot County Historical Society presents “Hurricanes and the Chesapeake Bay Region”. Author and researcher Rick Schwartz will discuss his findings and show track maps and photos from his seven years of research on 400 years of mid-Atlantic hurricane history.

Refreshments for the event will be provided by Suburban Power Services of Grasonville, which will also have information available about its residential and commercial power generators.

“Any weather event can cause a power outage,” said Suburban Power Services’ owner Wil Howerton. “The more severe the event — such as a hurricane — the more widespread and the longer an outage can be.

“We offer solutions to power outages caused by any type of problem. Our solutions, which help protect families and property throughout the region, are tailored to each resident’s or business owner’s situation. We offer free consultations by appointment.”

The coming hurricane season promises to have the potential for many power outages in this area. Scientists Philip Klotzbach and William Gray of Colorado State University’s Department of Atmospheric Science predict that 2011 hurricane activity in the Atlantic will be “very active” with five major hurricanes reaching Category 3 or stronger. They further predict that during the 2011 hurricane season (June 1 — November 30) there will be approximately 9 hurricanes and 16 named storms.

The scientists use a computer model they developed to make their predictions. They will revise the current prediction during the coming months.
