Today's weather trivia: 10 November

1975: U.S. scientists had solved the sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald on
Lake Superior. In the worst-possible location at the storm's peak, the 218-m
ore carrier was broadsided by 110 km/h west-to-east winds, hurricane-force

south to reach safety in Whitefish Bay. The vessel would have survived 6
hours earlier or later.
