On Sunday, October, 1, 1893, the lower coast was hit by a major hurricane, with winds estimated at 100 mph and 16 foot storm surges. This was when hurricanes were named for the places that they hit rather than chosen names. This storm became known as the Chénière Hurricane or simply L'Ouragan (The Hurricane). Both Grand Isle and Chénière Caminada were devastated, with 1150 people killed on Chénière Caminada and 18 on Grand Isle.
