Chuckanut Radio Hour featuring John Dodge, author of A Deadly Wind
The Columbus Day Storm of 1962 was a freak of nature, a weather outlier 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. To find an equally ferocious storm of its kind, fast-forward 50 years and cross the continent to Superstorm Sandys 2012 attack on the East Coast. While Superstorm Sandy was predicted days in advance, the Columbus Day Storm caught ill-equipped weather forecasters by surprise.

This unrivalled West Coast windstorm fueled the Asian log export market, helped give birth to the Oregon wine industry, and influenced the 1962 World Series. It remains a cautionary tale and the Pacific Northwest benchmark for severe windstorms in this era of climate change and weather uncertainty. From its genesis in the Marshall Islands to its final hours on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, the storm plowed an unparalleled path of destruction. In A Deadly Wind, veteran journalist John Dodge tells a compelling story spiced with human drama, Cold War tension, and Pacific Northwest history. This is a must-read for the tens of thousands of storm survivors, for history buffs, and for anyone interested in the intersection of severe weather events and climate change.

John Dodge was a columnist, editorial page writer, and investigative reporter for the Olympian before retiring in 2015 after an award-winning career spanning 40 years. Dodge is a veteran of natural disaster reporting, including the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens, the 1989 Bay Area earthquake, the 2001 Nisqually earthquake, and numerous damaging windstorms and floods. He experienced the Columbus Day Storm as a young teenager and wrote about the storm at its 25th, 40th, and 50th anniversaries. He lives in Olympia, Washington, with his wife, Barbara Digman.
