Although the storm in this photo is not identified, the date coincides with the formation of Hurricane Betsy, one of the costliest storms of that time (nicknamed “Billion Dollar Betsy”), and which even forced Gemini V to adjust its mission schedule.
I really like this photo. “Yo, Betsy! You tried to keep us from launching into space! Well, look where we are now!”
