This disaster story of the hurricane Gloria's devastation of Fire Island, off the shores of Long Island, isn't recommended because the author concentrates on the sexual proclivities of a couple of actual inhabitants who suffered through the storm, one of whom represents the conclave of homosexuals on the island. unpleasant and rather crude, so I ended up skimming/scanning after the first 50 pages.
