I was looking up what a Euroclydon is it’s in the Bible in which it is equal to what is called a nor’easter today. Paul was in Malta when this happened it had a name yet looking up the origin of nor’easter it only goes back to round the 1750 interesting how there’s no mentioning of the Bible using a word that means the exact same.

acts 27:14
But not long after there arose against it a tempestuous wind, called Euroclydon.

supposedly a history on its origin

The Oxford English Dictionary dates the appellation “nor'easter” back to the year 1837, although the less abbreviated form “north-easter” (also northeaster) goes all the way back to a Boston newspaper in 1753
