1780 Hurricane Had 200 MPH Winds And Killed More Than 25,000 People

Hurricane experts tell us that hurricanes are becoming more intense due to human breathing and cow farts.

Great Hurricane of 1780

The Great Hurricane of 1780, also known as the Hurricane San Calixto II, is the deadliest Atlantic hurricane on record. Well over 25,000 people died when the storm passed through the Lesser Antilles in the Caribbean between October 10 and October 16. The hurricane struck Barbados with wind gusts possibly exceeding 320 km/h (200 mph), before moving past Martinique, Saint Lucia, and Sint Eustatius; thousands of deaths were reported on each island. Coming in the midst of the American Revolution, the storm caused heavy losses to British and French fleets contesting for control of the area. The hurricane later passed near Puerto Rico and over the eastern portion of the Dominican Republic, causing heavy damage near the coastlines, and ultimately turned to the northeast before being last observed on October 20 southeast of Cape Race, Newfoundland.

    1780 was also noted for perhaps the most severe winter ever over the eastern half of the US. Most major NE cities were snowbound for many weeks. If we all shut off the electricity and heat, turn in our cars and go live in communes, depopulate, then successfully reduce CO2 levels to 250 ppm, we will have horrible, deadly 1780 weather to look forward to.
