While an unnamed Category 4 hurricane was pummeling south Florida on September 15, 1945, Lt. and Mrs. Carl Landau (who were staying at a shelter in West Palm Beach) welcomed a baby girl. They named her Karen Gale.
During the gusty Great Appalachian Storm of November 24-25, 1950, Mr. and Mrs. Donald Quinn of Burlington, Vermont, welcomed a baby girl. They named her Gale.
And don’t forget Barbara Gale, named for Hurricane Barbara in 1953.
