Abstract:The Storm.- The violent hurricane that devastated western Cuba and the Isle of Pines on Oct. 20,1926, passed in a general direction from southwest to northeast, with the center of the disturbance passing about 15 miles southeast of Havana. The wind blew with hurricane velocity for about twelve hours, continuing from about 2 o'clock in the early morning of Oct. 20 to about 2 o'clock in the afternoon. At first the wind blew from the east, but at 5 o'clock in the morning it shifted to the northeast. After 10 o'clock in the forenoon there was a sudden shift to the north, and still later to the northwest.
