The Storm Is Coming
Engraving, Bequest of Sally Kent Gorton,
Greenland Sea. Here the storm happens more often than calm does. And the lonely (for thousand miles) Jan Mayen Island with the three kilometers peak of the extinct Beerenberg Volcano, from which crater the icecaps as the flows of white lava crawl into the sea, boiled with the waves, can rarely be seen. We passed here on the board of “Persey” and I was able to see how dreadfully beautiful the island was during the storm. The same storm here was withstood by our famous submarine D-3, when it went into the all-time trip in helping to take the Panana people off the icecaps, which were driven into the Greenland Sea after the drift.
