 Hurricane Agnes - June 14-25, 1972

Agnes was one of the largest June hurricanes on record.  Banded convection was first noted in the
northwest Caribbean Sea on June 11.  A polar front dropped into region from the northwest.  As the
front approached, a depression formed over the Yucatan on the 14th and moved eastward into the
northwest Caribbean Sea.  The system strengthened into a tropical storm during the night of the 15th,
and a hurricane on the 18th as it moved northward in the Gulf of Mexico.  Moving into the Florida
panhandle as a hurricane, the system quickly weakened into a tropical depression as it moved through
Georgia on the 20th. 

A significant trough in the Westerlies approached Agnes, which led to a second low developing west
of Agnes.  The two cyclones moved in tandem and strengthened, with Agnes regaining tropical storm
strength over North Carolina and moved offshore Norfolk, Virginia.  While offshore New Jersey,
Agnes became a strong tropical storm again before it swung back inland near the western tip of Long
Island, becoming absorbed into the extratropical cyclone over Pennsylvania soon after.  It is virtually
impossible to determine how much of the rain that fell in the Mid-Atlantic would have fallen had
Agnes not existed as a moisture source for the cyclone, but Agnes was likely a major player in the
rain event that ensued. An event that wreaked havoc all along the Susquehanna River.

WMLP Radio played a major role in aiding the citizens of  the WMLP listening area. This is a one hour broadcast produced by Paul Herbert and WMLP.

The Agony of Agnes



Tropical storm Lee caused the worst flooding since Hurricane Agnes in 1972 in the valleys of the Susquehanna September 08, 2011,  forcing hundreds of thousands from their homes in Pennsylvania and New York.

Over a foot of rain fell in some areas. In Binghamton, N.Y. and in Bloomsburg, Meshoppen, and Wilkes-Barre, Pa., the flooding was worse than that of Agnes.

WKOK Radio, Sunbury, Pa. filed this report on September 08, 2011. (~23:00)
