"Wiliams, Verne O. Hurricane Season in Miami & Havana, in panoramic photographs. Miami, 1926. Collection of 16 original photographs, all 13 x 30 cm but one, usually with William's ink stamp ["Commercial Photographer"] on the verso. These two groups provide striking first-hand documentation of the devastation done in both cities in the fall of 1926 in the aftermath of one of the worst hurricane seasons ever. Before hurricanes were anthropomorphized with cute proper names, they were merely numbered. The strongest and most damaging storm of the 1926 season was Hurricane Seven, lamely nicknamed the Miami hurricane. Peaking as a Category 4 hurricane, the hurricane struck the Bahamas and Florida at a slightly weaekr intensity. Much of the Miami metropolitan area was devastated by the storm. Inland, a storm surge on Lake Okeechobee flooded towns such as Clewiston and Moore Haven. The storm ws a factor in ending the Florida land boom of the 1920s. Overall, the Miami hurricane resulted in at least 372 deaths and $125 million (126 USD) in damage. However, adjusted for wealth normalization in 2010, the damage toll would be $164.8 billion - far higher than Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

A month later, the tenth storm of the season, nicknamed the Havana-Bermuda, devastated Cuba, the Bahamas, and ships in the vicinity of Cuba alone. Damage to towns on the island exceeded $100 million (1926 USD). Collectively, the storms of this season left over $267.4 million in damage and at least 1,554 fatalities." -Mark Selvaggio
