Hurricane Ella (1958) 

Louis Hoffman, writing to his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Carl Hoffman of Neillsville, told of being caught in the Atlantic by Hurricane Ella. Traveling between Virginia and Boston, the U. S. S. Macon, to which Louis is assigned, was caught in the full fury of the hurricane winds.  "Folks," said Louis, "if you think the wind blows back in Wisconsin, you should see what it does in a hurricane.  I hope I’ll never have to go through one again."
