was considered the worst in fifty years. Few houses were left standing
either at Bay Saint Louis or at Pass Christian, and much of the Mississippi
coast was desolate following the storm. A U.S. cutter was lost along with
its thirty-nine crew members. The storm struck the same area that was hit
150 years later by Hurricane Camille. (David Ludlum)

temperature dropped to 37 degrees, as hail was three to four inches deep,
with drifts 46 inches high. (The Weather Channel)
