Primary sources cited in Ludlum (1963) were consulted wherever possible. Our analysis of temporal variation in New England hurricanes was based on 52 hurricanes whose maximum actual wind damage in the study region equaled or exceeded F1. At a seasonal scale, 90% of such hurricanes (and all hurricanes that caused F3 damage) occurred during the months of August, September, and October. About 30% of these storms occurred in October and November, during or after leaf senescence in New England, when deciduous trees are much less likely to suffer wind damage.
