Today's weather trivia: 28 December
1905: An ominous, overcast sky, freezing temperatures, howling 100 km/hr
winds, and 9-m waves battered Vancouver Island's west coast. The Pass of
Melfort was driven onto the rocks and then sank in 70 m of water. Her 36-man
crew perished, only 2 bodies ever found. The tragedy caused the Amphitrite
Point lighthouse to be built the next year. It lasted just 8 years, until a
storm swept it away.
