Most people know the sad story of the Titanic. But the Atlantic had other sunken ships. Have you ever heard of the SS Morro Castle? She was an ocean liner completed in the 1930s. On September 5th, 1934, the ship embarked on its final trip, with more than 500 people on board. In the afternoon of September 6th, the liner came across strong winds and thick clouds. The next morning, the clouds became thicker, and the wind shifted to the east. This was the first sign of a developing storm.
That day, the captain of the ship, Robert Willmott, had his dinner delivered to him. He soon complained that his stomach hurt. Later, he was found unconscious without a pulse. Chief Officer William Warms took over. At this point, the winds were traveling at 30 miles per hour. But things were about to get worse… Here’s the story of Morro Castle shipwrecked on the Jersey shore, and some of the survivors.
