10 October marks the anniversary of the deadliest hurricane to strike in the Atlantic. In 1780, Hurricane San Calixto, also known as the Great Hurricane of the Antilles, passed over the Lesser Antilles islands in the Caribbean, dashing the islands for a week before passing close to Puerto Rico and turning northeast. It caused untold damage and the deaths of over 27,500 people.
