"At 12:10 a.m. on Monday, September 29, 2003, the worst storm to hit Nova Scotia in more than a century made landfall near ShadBay. It took only a few hours for hurricane Juan to tear across the provin ce, but it left a trail of devastation in its wake. Juan killed two people,levelled homes, ripped apart the province's electricity grid and turned fo rests into splinters. It carried a terrible punch -- winds gusted up to 175kilometres per hour -- and it has left a mark that won't soon be erased. T he reporters and photographers of The Chronicle Herald documented the storm, the damage, the tragedies, the struggle to cope and the recovery effort. The paper served as a vital lifeline to the hundreds of thousands of Nova Scotians without power. This book -- the story of Juan -- is built around the best of that coverage." - from the rear cover.
