Hurricane Camille

I was down on Little Cayman during the summer of 1969, and had to delay coming home because of the bad weather Hurricane Camille caused there. As I recall, the winds weren't 90 miles per hour at Little Cayman, but when Camille hit the Gulf Coast there were sustained winds of 190 MPH and possibly higher. By the time Camille reached the Appalachians, it dropped 27 inches of rain in less than 6 hours.

Here is a 1971 Civil Defense documentary about Camille and the clean up:

No power, no water, no food.

It may be interesting to explore the Internet Archive site where I found it.
