This week marks the 100th anniversary of the Great Lakes White Hurricane, a powerful storm system that combined whiteout blizzard conditions with hurricane force winds.

The storm sat over Michigan November 7-10, 1913 and claimed 250 lives during the three day period.

Damages from the storm added up to more than $115 million in today's dollars. It destroyed a dozen ships.
