The storm that devastated the districts of Fontvieille and Larvotto during the night from Monday to Tuesday is reminiscent of another historic storm recorded in 1928 and told in the archives of the Oceanographic Museum.

The Oceanographic Museum has plunged its nose into its archive to find this information.

Ninety years ago, on October 31, 1928, a "Halloween" storm had already broken out in the Principality.

Jules Richard, director of the museum from 1900 to 1945, noted in his notes: "At 11:15, the rain gauge was reversed by a wind of 32 m / s" or 115.2 km / h.

Yesterday, the weather alarm winds over 70 km / h in the night from Wednesday to Thursday in Monaco.
