Presented By Eliot Kleinberg

How these amazing but devastating weather machines work and have affected Florida, focusing on recent storms and on the great 1928 storm, the second-deadliest disaster in U.S. history and subject of Eliot’s award-winning Black Cloud. Includes a warning that people might not be as prepared as they think.

Eliot Kleinberg, born in South Florida, has spent nearly four decades as a reporter, including more than a quarter-century at The Palm Beach Post in West Palm Beach.

In addition to covering local news, he also writes extensively about Florida and Florida history.

He has written 10 books, all focusing on Florida, including “Black Cloud”, on the great 1928 Okeechobee Hurricane; two “Weird Florida” books, and “Palm Beach Past” and “Wicked Palm Beach”, both of them collections of items from “Post Time,” his weekly local history column in the Post. His tenth, Peace River, is historical novel based at the end of the Civil War.
