NO-NAME Hurricane, Perth Amboy, NJ – 1992
The 'No-Name Hurricane' of 1992 struck the New Jersey coast between December 11 and 13, 1992. The only difference between this mid-December storm and a true hurricane was the lack of a well defined eye. All of the other ingredients were present, including wind gusts in excess of 75 MPH, driving rain, and a significant storm surge.
