the southeast all night, as fierce as a hurricane, and thereupon followed
the highest tide which we have seen since our arrival here". (David Ludlum)

inland parts of southern California. The high winds produced a 28,000 acre
brush fire on a 40-mile front west of Crystal Lake. People were ordered off
streets in some areas due to flying debris. (21st-22nd) (The Weather
