White Hurricane and November storms recalled

Email

By most accounts the storm dubbed the White Hurricane of 1913 was the largest and deadliest of its kind in Great Lakes' recorded history. The storm began Nov. 7, sweeping across the lakes from west to east, leaving behind a wake of destruction unlike any before. By the time the storm subsided days later, it had claimed over 250 souls and the financial loss to the shipping industry was estimated to be $5 million -- roughly $119 million in today's dollars.
