Storm Warning: Historic Weather in the Evergreen State
Town Square: Historic Weather in the Evergreen State

Folio: The Seattle Athenaeum & Humanities Washington present local broadcaster and historian Feliks Banel exploring our region's darkest weather days and most infamous storms. With archival photos, radio, and TV clips, Banel takes us back in time to hear stories of those who survived some of the worst Pacific Northwest weather in recorded history. Further, Banel explores how these storms can revive our shared humanity. Frightening weather can bind communities together to share resources, commiserate, and protect each other. Participants are encouraged to share their own memories of how they survive being snowed in, washed out, or left without power in the wake of a big storm-and why we remember those moments for the rest of our lives.
