In this episode of the Ocean Mist Power Hour, host Misty Young shares the gripping story of the great summer storm of 1972 in which numerous boats capsized and sank and 13 people lost their lives. The rare “autumnal equinox” storm, came up suddenly, blasting winds of nearly 90 knots, cutting off communications, toppling trees and wreaking havoc for two hours before it vanished and a normal summer day resumed.
