In the small seaside town of Portsmouth, Virginia, a secret has been kept for generations. Since the time when settlers first came to this isolated part of the Chesapeake Bay coastline, the community has been plagued by what some call a curse. Once every fifty years or so, a storm of biblical proportions rolls in from the sea. What know one knows, except perhaps the elderly members of the community who may have been children old enough to remember the last storm, is that this storm brings with it more than just inclement weather. Within its pale mists and driving rains, the spirits of the dead lost at sea are said to roam freely for as long as the storm lasts. The terrible secret know only by a select few residents of Portsmouth, which they keep guarded from most of the community as well as outsiders, is that the storm will not subside until more souls are added to the number of the dead claimed by it over countless past years.
The date is now November 4th, 2011, and the people of Portsmouth have no idea of the terrible forces that are about to fall upon them.......
