Hurricanes and the War of 1812

The wonderful folks at the Navy Department Library have recently posted transcripts of key Naval documents regarding previous hurricanes and New Orleans in 1812. http://www.history.navy.mil/library/online/hurricane_1812.htm It appears that two hurricances struck the area in the months of August and September destroying ships and taking out bridges but resulting in no loss of life. Government response, in light of the limited communication available in 1812, was relatively swift.
