Record #:
A hurricane struck the North Carolina coast in 1750, wreaking havoc on various vessels and coastal communities. During the storm, five Spanish vessels including the Nuestra Senora de Solidad were wrecked near Currituck Inlet, Drum Inlet, and Topsail Inlet. Other vessels were reported sunk at Cape Hatteras, and Ocracoke. In many instances, the cargoes were brought to shore and the crews sought aid from colonists in Norfolk, Virginia.
