THE WRECK OF THE PORTLAND: A Doomed Ship, a Violent Storm, and New England's Worst Maritime Disaster
The SS Portland was a solid and luxurious ship. In November 1898, a perfect storm formed off the New England coast. Conditions would produce a blizzard with 100 mile per hour winds and 60-foot waves that pummeled the coast. The Portland set out ahead of the storm, with some 200 passengers and crew aboard. The ship and her crew were never seen again. Photos.
