“Deadly Storms of Delmarva” Coming June 6 to RBM!


The Rehoboth Beach Museum welcomes back Michael Morgan with his newest book, Deadly Storms of the Delmarva Coast, for a book signing and a presentation, Storms and the Cape Henlopen Lighthouse on June 6.

Morgan’s latest book is about the vulnerability of coastal Delaware, Maryland and Virginia to storms and storm-driven shipwrecks. Since the early 19th century, storms have led to drastic changes to our shorelines. He narrates the stories of these storms and reminds us of the power of wind and water. Morgan will also explain how storms contributed to the demise of the Cape Henlopen Lighthouse which fell into the sea in 1926.

Morgan has been writing articles on the history of Coastal Delaware for more than 30 years. His columns appear weekly in the Delaware Coast Press and the Wave, and his “Lore of Delmarva” weekly radio commentary is broadcast by WGMD!
