The storm still continued, and the weather did not clear up until night.

Fray Juan Crespi
The storm lasted all day until night, when it cleared up. The California Indians who are with the expedition found on the beach an iron hoop, very large and much worn,
which, when it was new, must have weighed several arrobas. It is thought it must have come from some ship's mast.
