1867 Atlantic Hurricane #9

On October 27, a tropical storm was first detected east of the northern Lesser Antilles. It moved westward, becoming a hurricane on the 28th, and a major hurricane on the 29th. It reached its peak of 125 mph just before hitting St. Thomas, where roughly 50 ships were driven ashore or wrecked (from Sinking of the Titanic), including the RMS Rhone. It weakened slightly prior to its Puerto Rico landfall on the 29th, decreasing its winds further over the island. It hit Hispanola on the 30th, and dissipated that day over the island's high mountains. The hurricane caused 811 deaths.
