Advocate (Newspaper) - August 28, 1964, Victoria, Texas THE VICTORIA ADVOCATE 119th 113 TELEPHONE HI S-Ull Cleo Cuts Costly Path In Florida Cape Crews Guard Rockets CAPE KENNEDY, Fla. (AP) Hurricane Cleo lashed this sprawling space center with gales Thursday night after cut- ting a multimillion-dollar path of destruction across Miami and up B'lorida's "Gold Coast." With vyinds of 100 miles an hour whipping around its cen- ter, the storm moved slowly northward (oward Ihe missile pads of (he Cape after stalling for nearly an hour near Mel- bourne, about 35 miles to the south. Advance gales ol 50 m.p.h. whipped across Cape Kennedy, and emergency crews kepi close watch on five space rockets lashed tor security on launching pads. Craft Warned Hurricane warnings were hoisted as far north as Brun- swick, Ga., and small croft up to Cape Haltcras, N.C., were warned to stick close lo port.

Al leasl 124 died in Haiti, 14 on the island of Guadeloupe.

There was lillle, if any, structu- ral damage to buildings. Not a single death had been reported in Florida after Cleo, which killed at least 138 persons in Guadeloupe and Haiti, had smashed across Miami and 100 miles norlhward up the coast through Hollywood, Fort Lau- derdalc, West Palm Beach and Sluarl.
