In March of 1993, a “superstorm” affected one third of the continental United States.  A rare low-pressure trough brought cold temperatures, high winds, and heavy rain and snow, carving a path of destruction as it climbed up the Eastern coastline.

 

For three days severe weather pelted the Eastern Seaboard and inland Eastern states.  At least 26 states felt the impact of the storm.  Tennessee saw record snowfall.  Near hurricane force winds with gusts up to 93 miles per hour ravaged the eastern Carolinas.  Storm surges and tornadoes wreaked havoc across Florida.  Roads were closed and planes grounded.  More than 10 million households lost electricity.             

 

The 1993 storm rivaled its predecessors in intensity, area affected, and damage caused.  But unlike past superstorms, sophisticated forecasting had seen this one coming.  Blizzard conditions were predicted at least 48 hours in advance.  Warnings went out on television and radio.  Many areas had declared a State of Emergency even before the snow began to fall.  People had a chance to prepare.

 

For many places in the eastern United States, the 1993 superstorm was the “Storm of the Century.”  But thanks to extremely accurate weather predictions, its toll – though devastating – was likely less than it otherwise would have been.    

 

Each of the 2015 Snowflake stamps pictures a different type of snowflake in a different color.  They were designed by Antonio Alcalá and Leslie Badani.
