A Deadly Wind: The 1962 Columbus Day Storm @ Vernetta Smith Chehalis Timberland Library
Mar 23 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

On October 12, 1962, a windstorm fueled in part by the remains of Typhoon Freda struck the Pacific Northwest with deadly winds topping one hundred miles per hour.

The storm killed dozens, injured hundreds, damaged more than fifty thousand homes, and leveled enough timber to build one million homes. Join us for an author talk with John Dodge, former investigative reporter for The Olympian, as he reads passages from his new book about Typhoon Freda, “A Deadly Wind: The 1962 Columbus Day Storm.” This talk will include a slideshow and a question and answer session. A signing will follow the presentation, and copies of the book will be available for purchase.
