1993 ‘Great Blizzard’ Slams East Coast

The record-breaking “storm of the century” devastated the East Coast from Florida to Maine with blizzard snows, high winds, floods and tornadoes.  Alabama saw 15 inches of snow, while Tennessee was hit with 21 inches.  High winds created white-out conditions on highways and knocked down trees.
