1959 hurricane data

Posted by deanna on December 22, 2009, 2:46 pm

While cleaning out an old file this morning I came across a printout from Wikipedia about the 1959 hurricane that came ashore in this area as a Category 5 - the only (recorded) Cat. 5 ever to make landfall in the Pacific. Here's a link to the article:

Unisys gives the coordinates for this storm as 19.3/104.8 to 19.7/104.4 on October 27th (L.M.'s coordinates are 19.16/104.4). This must be the storm Mokita wrote about so movingly a few
months ago. Here's the link:

It's listed as "hurricane #15", a late season storm - October 23 to October 29.
