Last Island, 1856:
"Thirteen inches of rain fell on New Orleans from this Category 4 storm. But the hurricane gets its name from Isle Derniere, or Last Island, where over 200 people were killed, with the only survivor being a cow. The island, southwest of New Orleans, had been a resort up until the arrival of this hurricane. It is now only a home to pelicans and other sea birds."
