    • TRIVIA (1)

      • The Atlantic coast hurricane (before the era of naming the storms) was powerful enough to register on seismographs in Alaska.

    • QUOTES (1)

      • Doris Layden (witness): There were actual waves in the center of Providence (Rhode Island), and the trolley cars were submerged. And when they were submerged, all these cars, the horns shorted-out, and the sound of the horns through the water was the most eerie thing you ever heard in your life.
