Weather History
Five people were killed on this date in 1990 as three small fishing boats capsized in the Strait of Juan De Fuca. These people were caught off guard by conditions that quickly changed from calm to ten-foot seas in minutes due to the passage of a speedy Pacific cold front embedded with 60 mph winds.
