*Can't be the Bible.
Through the torrents of rain and wind, the order was passed to the crew to prepare to save themselves as the Priscilla was about to wreck.
After tossing about for the entire day, the ship finally struck bottom at about 9:00 p.m. on the seventeenth. For the next hour, the Priscilla was bashed against the shallow shoals as huge breakers crashed over its hull. Within moments, Captain Springsteen's wife, his son, and two crew members were swept overboard and drowned. Shortly afterward, and with a loud crash, the ship's hull broke apart, and the remaining horrified sailors held tightly to their wreck. Five more terrorizing hours would pass before the captain and his surviving crew would aproach the beach. (North Carolina's Hurricane History by: Jay Barnes)
