... On this date in weather history...

In 1928... hurricane San Felipe... a monstrous hurricane
that left around 1,200 dead in Guadeloupe in the eastern
Caribbean... and another 300 dead in Puerto Rico... struck
West Palm Beach causing incredible damage. It then
crossed Lake Okeechobee. After the storm surge had
breached the dikes... the lake covered an area about the
size of Delaware... and left around 2,500 fatalities. The
only survivors were those who had sought Refuge in large
hotels and 50 others who had taken their chances by
riding out the storm on a raft. In total... the hurricane
is believed to have killed 4,078 and caused around $100
million damage. Adjusted for inflation... this would
equal $1.27 billion. It was the second category 5
hurricane on record in the Atlantic Basin.
