Abstract: During the winter of 1991-92, two intense storms caused extraordinary damage along the eastern seaboard of the United States. The most notable of these storms occurred from 29 October to 2 November 1991, and is commonly referred to as the "Halloween Storm.'' This report uses factors other than coastal water levels to assign "frequency of occurrence" or "return interval" to events such as the Halloween Storm. The approach used focuses on storm characteristics rather than the effects of the event. These characteristics include the duration, intensity, size. area of origin, and track. In addition, meteorological records for approximately the past 30 years were examined for systems which exhibited track characteristics similar to those of the Halloween Storm. Correlation of other characteristics will require further study and will be explained in subsequent reports.
