Just as the HMS Otranto faced a wicked storm at sea 100 years ago, our region faced a very unpredictable hurricane. Due to very uncertain conditions of Florence we cancelled the event.
If you visit the Tybee Island lighthouse and Fort Screven Museum at Battery Garland we hope you will stop at the marker and silently think of all the souls whose lives were profoundly changed that October day.
