Mixtories 3 "The Armistice Day Storm of 1940"

Witness Lake Michigan’s fury through the eyes of the men who survived when 126 mile-per-hour winds pushed their freighter Novadoc onto a sandbar near Mears, Michigan. The wheelsman and fireman recount not only the killer storm that sank three ships but also their rescue by three local fishermen aboard the tug Three Brothers. Historian Ric Mixter not only shares these exclusive eyewitness accounts of the storm but also another unknown rescue from the Novadoc as well as family accounts of the captain lost when the William Davock rolled over off Little Point Sable. Add in two more interviews from the men who saved the crew of the Sinaloa and you have a podcast that you’ll never forget.
