Above, the Beaver Tail left East Ferry and headed to Newport for better protection. It was blown onto the Jamestown shore more than 2 miles north of town. The crew got ashore safely, but the ferry was beyond repair. Right, Mackerel Cove Beach after the hurricane. Below, the town beach before the storm. The roof was blown north to Hodgkiss Farm. George West picked up about 60 doors to use as firewood, and Lewis Hull salvaged enough timber to frame a whole barn.
