On October 7, arcs, or bow echoes, of high winds and thunderstorms sped across the Northeast. Wind gusts, low humidity, and cooler temperatures combined to create a hybrid storm event (afterwards determined to be a derecho) that rampaged across New York, western Massachusetts, and eastward into southern New England. While some areas sustained little damage, the Arnold Arboretum experienced one of its worst storms in recent decades. Staff members Rachel Brinkman and John DelRosso will show images of the aftermath, discuss clean-up strategies, and address the impact of such a storm on our long-lived collection of research specimens.
Join us via Zoom on Thursday, November 5 at 2:30pm.
