Colonial Hurricanes

Most of the early European settlers knew virtually nothing about hurricanes; however, they discovered the power of these storms early. Harvard Business School has a great article about colonial hurricanes. Thanks to Everything and Nothing for the Hat Tip. The article was excerpted from "Weathering the Storms: Hurricanes and Risk in the British Greater Caribbean." Business History Review, Vol. 78, No. 4, Winter 2004.
