Storyboard Text

  • Yes my dear, I promise to be back as soon as I can.
  • This storm came out of nowhere! It's crazy! Will you be back soon from the boats?
  • Back in November, 1913...There was a blizzard with hurricane-force winds.
  • Goodbye my Elijah, be safe and come home to me. I need you
  • Goodbye my darling Katarina. I love you, I promise to be back soon.
  • Little did Katarina know, her loving husband Elijah, was going to go on a boat in one of the worst storms on the Great Lakes ever.
  • Oh no, this storm doesn't look good at all. I think we need to turn back.
  • Elijah noticed that there was ships all around him starting to sink. He needed to get out of there and quick.
  • I wish I could have said goodbye to my Katarina one last time. My ship is sinking, God, please watch over her!
  • Along with Elijah's ship, 11 others sunk in the storm. 6 other ships were destroyed and 19 ships were stranded. More than 50 people were killed
  • I can't believe he is gone
  • My husband Elijah died in what was the deadliest and most destructive disaster on the Great Lakes. The loss in ships and cargo tallied $121 million (in today's currency). I loved my husband dearly and there was no way to save him from this Michigan disaster. I am Katrina and that is my story.
