All records for wind velocity in
New York City were broken when
the wind reached 80 miles an hour
at 8:25 p. m„ Eastern War Time
Gusts as high as 95 miles an
hour were reported by the Wea
ther Bureau. The bureau said the
highest previous velocity in the
nation’s largest city was 73 miles
an hour in 1912.
The 90-mile-an-hour reading was
recorded at the Coast Guard station
at Manasquan, N. J., about eight
miles south of the resort city oi
Asbury Park. Winds as high as 83
miles an hour were recorded earl
ier on the Virginia coast.
Water five to six feet deep, all
from rain, blocked highways in the
vicinity of Hicksville, N. Y., a Long
Island community in an area hard
hit by the famous hurricane of 1938.
Hundreds of automobiles were
stalled along the Jericho turnpike
on the northern coast of Long Is
land and elsewhere. Fishing craft
and other small boats were report
ed washed ashore on the southern
side of Long Island and in har
bors on the north side.
Trees up to 60 feet high were top
pled in the area of Hicksville and
Riverhead.
Sheriff W. C. McCollom of Suf
folk County, N- Y., reported abnor
mally high tides in the area. Elec
tric service in the area was “off
and on”, he said.
The Weather Bureau reported in
an advisory that the storm center
was expected to pass across east
ern Long Island and enter southern
New England. But hurricane warn
ings were lowered from Delaware
breakwater to Norfolk, Va.
Repeated breaks in the long is
land railroad signal system caus
ed difficulty in keeping trains mov
ing.
Ferry operations between New
York and Hoboken, N. J., were sus
pended because docks were cover
ed with two feet of water. With
drawn from operations were the
Lackawanna Railroad ferry at 23rd
Street and the Barkley Street ferry.
Beaches along the southern shore
of Long Island, including such ex
clusive reports as Southampton,
were evacuated.
Police cleared a 12-mile stretch
of the Rhode Island shore between

Watch Hill and Weekapaugh, one
of the section hardest hit by the
1938 storm.
In New York City, sidewalks
were virtually deserted. Wind
whipping sheets of rain around the
corners of tall buildings smashed_
plate glass windows
Four persons were cut by flying
glass when the window of a Broad
way self-service restaurant was
blown in.
Earlier in the day the swerving
tropical hurricane veered eastward
just enough to miss the North
Carolina coast but the -fringe of
the storm wrecked communica
tions systems from Morehead City
north to the Virginia border.
After a night of suspense in
which many coastal inhabitants
fled inland before the big blow,
the hurricane turned northeast at
dawn. At 11 a. m., a bright sun
broke through the clouds in More
head city and evacuees began re
turning to their homes.
Winds that reached a velocity
of almost 70 miles an hour tan
gled telephone wires, uprooted
trees and broke windows, and tor
rential rains poured all along the
coast, but damage was only su
perficial and no one was reported
killed or injured.
At Raleigh, state highway patrol
headquarters said that damage in
the Elizabeth City area probably
would be heavier than at any oth
er point on the North Carolina
coast.
The Elizabeth City area had
been without communications with
the outside world since shortly be
fore noon. Telephone and power
lines were blown down by winds
said to have reached a velocity
approximately 75 miles an hour.
Capt, C. D. Farmer, command
er of the eastern division of the
patrol, said houses were blown
down in the Elizabeth City arm
and on beaches in the vicinity.
Particularly heavy damage was
apparent in areas south of Nags
Head.
There were no immediate re
ports of death or injuries, he said.
Patrol headquarters had been in
communication with the area by
radio until shortly before 1 p. m.,
when the storm passed. No further
reports had been received since
that time, Farmer said.
Warned in advance as the wea
ther bureau plotted the course of
the storm, which generated a
speed estimated at 140 miles an
hour during its week-long 1,400
mile career from the Leeward is
lands, civilians and military in
stallations were prepared when
the winds struck.
No damage was done at the
three big military bases south of
Morehead City, Camp Davis, Ar
my anti-aircraft post; Camp Le
jeune, biggest Marine base on the
east coasjt, and the Navy’s air
station at Cherry Point.

secured in Wilmington from the
expected fury, was on an all
night alert for opportunities of
rescue; the Control Center was
ready; sheriff’s deputies, the
police department and the state
highway patrol were prepared
throughout the area for danger.
Tide Water Power company
was on stand-by to sever power
connections as a measure
to protect life; Western Union

So little reliable information has
been available for about five years
that there is no way of gauging
at present the extent of possible
underground organizations, the
probabilities of separatist tenden
cies among the several old Ger
man states, or any of the multi
tude of similar broad questions
which will have an important bear
ing, if they are not decisive, on
the future of Germany.
The second factor—Russian fear
or suspicion—was described as be
ing simpler to handle, although it is
of equal or perhaps greater impor
tance to the hope of permanent
peace in Europe. The American
government’s view was said to be
that, for the immediate future at
least and for the long run prob
ably, complete and wholehearted
Russian cooperation was the ab
solute essential, and accordingly
there would be no presentation of
an Anglo - American agreement
which the Russians might by the
widest stretch of the imagination
interpret as pressure on them.
