Bruce Kemp spoke to the Shellbacks Club about the 1913 weather bomb, the "extra-tropical hurricane" that devastated the Great Lakes, sinking ships and killing hundreds of mariners.
Bruce related a selection of the fascinating tales of that storm, his reconstruction of events, and his interviews with those recalling the events of the time. These make a selection of the materials in his 2017 book "Weather Bomb 1913: Life and Death on the Great Lakes".
The Shellback Club will make occasional posts on this blog. If you want something added in a blog post. let us know.
