The 1998 ice storm that attacked Eastern Canada and North-East United States caused millions of dollars in damages especially to the electrical distribution system. 1000 hydro towers collapsed plus 24,000 wooden poles down made for weeks of no electricity for 1000's of people. It did bring out the best in people as there were many stories of individuals helping complete strangers with food and shelter. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0771061005, Hardcover)

In January 1998, five days of freezing rain, up to 100 millimetres, fell in some parts of eastern Canada and the northeastern United States. About 2 million homes – more than 5 million people – were plunged into darkness for up to a month in the dead of winter. It was, indisputably, the storm of the century.

This book is the definitive story of the ice storm, captured in pictures by Canada’s best news photographers. The following newspapers have combined their resources to make this book: La Presse (Montreal), The Gazette (Montreal), The Ottawa Citizen, Le Nouvelliste (Trois Rivières), Le Droit (Ottawa), The Whig-Standard (Kingston), The Standard Freeholder (Cornwall), The Recorder and Times (Brockville) and La Voix de l’Est (Granby). A portion of the proceeds is donated to charity.
