AMERICAN EXPERIENCE

Hurricane of '38 Preview

  • Aired: 05/17/2010

  • Rating: TV-PG
As the storm made its way across the Atlantic and up the eastern seaboard, there was little warning. Radar had not been invented. The National Weather Bureau predicted it would blow itself out at North Carolina, but it didn't. No one had ever seen a storm like this.
