CLEVELAND - One hundred years ago on this date, a storm began that would eventually tear through Northeast Ohio.

It was known as the "White Hurricane" and the storm dumped 22 inches of snow in one day. The storm had 90 mile per hour winds and caused 35 foot waves on the Great Lakes.

A total of nineteen ships sank during the storm and more than 250 people were killed.

Cleveland saw significant damage totaling about three and a half million dollars. In today's dollar, this amount would be roughly 85 millions dollars.
