    There was a 180 mph wind measured in Camille at a land station, on the weak side no less. The strongest winds did not miraculously dance around land stations like Irene’s did (sarc).

    Camille is well known in this part of the country as well. It came up here as just a windy rain storm, stalled, and washed an entire county down a valley. Over 130 killed (the total population was only a few thousand). 27 inches of rain in 24 hours.

    Since Agnes (its sister back in 72), nothing like that has hit this state.

    Hurricane Camille is my topic for my research project and this was one hardcore storm. May peace be with the ones who died. R.I.P.
