LORIDA : Ten Spanish treasure ships sunk killing nearly 1,000 people. All of the gold and silver onboard at the time would not be recovered until 250 years later. From 1701, Spain sent fleets of ships to the Western Hemisphere to bring back natural resources, including gold and silver. These groups of ships were heavily fortified against pirates, but there was little that could be done to protect them from bad weather. Ventured further out from the shore.
A week later, as the ships were between Cape Canaveral and Fort Pierce, in modern-day Florida, the winds picked up dramatically. The hurricane advanced quickly and, one by one, the ships were wrecked. Nuestra Senora de la Regla.Sank, sending 200 people and 120 tons of coins to a watery grave. Santa Cristo de San Ramon. Went down with 120 sailors aboard.
