    i remember one of those coastal cities in Mississippi recorded 180 mph from the northwest on the “weak” side of the storm!

    Camille is the Secretariat/Sandy Koufax/Bob Beamon/Kurt Warner/Michael Jordan of hurricanes.

    How about the one-two punch at that time. In 1970 Celia hit and really knocked Corpus Christi for a loop. I went to work there just following and it was bad….but Camille was something else again. (Incidently, the apartments shown were notorious as the place where a “hurricane party” was held. I think there was only one or two durvivors.)
