"It certainly was an interesting day. When I first went out, about 9 a.m., the wind was lifting large amounts of sea and blowing it across the village. I think the specialty of the hurricane wind is its persistence in the high strength and constant direction so that the sea piles up far above its normal level. Soon we saw from the laboratory window that piers and landing stages were breaking up. Boats and dustbins drifted around the streets. Then the water came up over the sea wall, rising steadily. I came back to see how things were in my digs [the Little's house], and found water half way up the walls in the sitting room. The older of the seven "little Littles" were giving their younger brother a swimming lesson in the sitting room."
