Program Revisits Deadly 1913 Storm

Join the Gibraltar Historical Association (GHA) on Oct. 20, 7:15 pm, for this season’s last Gibraltar Talks: a program on the “White Hurricane.”

A storm in 1913, nicknamed the “White Hurricane,” was the deadliest and most destructive storm to hit the Great Lakes. GHA will share what led to the sinking of 12 ships and commemorate the 250 sailors lost in a storm that raged for days. Russ Haack, a U.S. Coast Guard licensed Master Captain with 45,000 miles of experience at the helm, will also share his knowledge and perspectives on the subject.

The program will take place at the Old Town Hall, 4176 Maple St. in Fish Creek. Learn more and become a GHA member at
