A Deadly Wind: The 1962 Columbus Day Storm
John Dodge’s A Deadly Wind (Oregon State) is a detailed account of the most powerful windstorm in recorded history to strike the West Coast. The Columbus Day Storm of Oct. 12, 1962, was a freak of nature, with deadly winds topping 100 miles per hour. The storm killed dozens, injured hundreds, damaged more than 50,000 homes, and leveled enough timber to build one million homes. A Deadly Wind tells the story spiced with human drama, Cold War tension, and Pacific Northwest history.
