Inez Hits Florida Coast By BEN FUNK MIAMI, Fla. Inez, in the Uth day of a wild rampage across tropic seas, at- tacked southeast Florida's glit- tering Gold Coast today with brawling gales, torrential rain and wild surf. Power lines snapped in great showers of sparks, traffic lights danced crazily and fell, and an- gry waves tore at the white sand beaches as the hurricane raked the cost from Fort Lauderdale to the Florida Keys. Seawalls crumbled and crash- ing surf dashed across low-ly- ing streets and highways. Rick- ety signs blew down and bounced across roads, a peril to the few motorists who had to be "on the streets. Palm fronds, loost garbage cans and other small debris careened through sections ex- posed to the sharpest winds. The first gust of hurricane strength, 75 miles an hour, slammed into Tavernier at the top of the chain of the Florida Keys at 8 a.m. Gales hitting a 60-mile clip hammered at the coast from Jupiter, north of Palm Beach, south to the Keys. But with top winds of only 85 miles an hour, Inez was no long- er the monstrous storm she had been when she raged through the Caribbean, killing possibly hundreds. In Key Largo, power failed at 8 a.m. Clerks in boarded hotels and bars, who had been through this many times before, trim- med and lit hurricane lamps. Many of the 2 million resi- dents of the area had gone to bed believing they were out of danger. They awoke hi the ear- ly morning darkness to the crashing thunder of wind and rain. Frantically, they rigged storm shelters and rushed to stores that opened early to dispense canned goods, kerosene and candles. Late Monday, Inez was head- ing northward toward Abaco Island in the Bahamas, away from Miami. By midnight, she was backpeddling on a west- southwest course aimed at the Florida Keys. Never before had forecasters had a storm on their hands so hard to figure. "The center should go ashore near Key Largo (40 miles south of said Gordon Dunn, Please Turn to Page 8, Col. 6 Please Turn to Page 6, Col. 7 Military Service looms for Some Between 26-35 WASHINGTON (AP) Some young men who got past their 26th birthday on draft defer- ments may be called to military service after all.
