Today’s Weather Trivia:
30 October 1921:1921: A nor'easter ravaged the Newfoundland coast. At Harbor Breton, the storm destroyed 3 churches and felled telegraph lines. A badly damaged schooner lost her captain and 1 crew, and the dozens on board abandoned her at Pilley's Island. Many lost all their gear and their proceeds from last summer's fishing on the Labrador coast. They had to complete their journey by mail steamer and train. – Excerpt from 'The Canadian Weather Trivia Calendar' by David Phillips. © Environment Canada
