March has been a crazy month for weather! As we wait on the precipice of yet another snowstorm this evening, we reflect on the worst storms Staten Island has seen in a lifetime. Correspondent Hannah Jay interviews broker and co-owner Anthony Licciardello as they count down the 7 Most Severe Staten Island Storms.
Some of these storms are record holders; others can't be quantified in their toll on our lives. All have one thing in common- their destructive impact that lasted long past the storm itself.
Staten Islanders will find a few of these in our recent memory, while others provide a history lesson for younger residents. As each winter goes by, it makes for uncertain times during blizzard and Hurricane seasons. Many of you will remember the unease felt on the Island during each of these monumental storms. Some of them came on so fast, they were unnamed or even unannounced altogether!
Watch our live video from Facebook as Hannah and Anthony unveil the list below, ranked in terms of their impact on Staten Island homes:
Winter storm Jonas
Blizzard of February 2006
Blizzard of ‘96
2010 Nor’Easter “No name storm”
The Great Nor’Easter of ‘92 or “Storm of the Century”
