An aerial view of the 1991 Halloween Nor'easter (also known as the Perfect Storm).  It was an unusual nor'easter which was extratropical, absorbed one hurricane, and ultimately evolved into a small hurricane within an extratropical system late in its life cycle.  The initial area of low pressure formed across Indiana before moving offshore Atlantic Canada, where the cyclone reached its peak intensity.  The Halloween Storm of 1991 was costly; damage was estimated at $208 million (1991 USD), mostly in Massachusetts and New Jersey.  It caused 12 confirmed deaths; including 6 onboard the Andrea Gail and one Air National Guard pararescue jumper, TSgt Arden "Rick" Smith.
