The murky fog that rolled suddenly in across the mouth of Chesapeake Bay was as thick as pea soup that fateful night of May 12, 1911. The fog closed in on the S. S. Merida as the Cuba to New York steamer slid along through otherwise peaceful waters off the Virginia Capes, 42 miles east of Cape Charles.
