John Tlumacki/Globe Staff
The following is a look at a few of the most powerful storms to hit this region, selected from some 150 stunning photographs in "Great New England Storms of the 20th Century,'' a book by The Boston Globe. The book features vivid, first-hand accounts of these often disastrous storms and reflections from popular New England meteorologists. Here's the cover photo, taken on Lighthouse Road in Scituate during a northeaster in mid-April 1997.
