The next day, early in the morning, he sent both foot-soldiers and horse in three
divisions on an expedition to pursue those who had fled. These having advanced a
little way, when already the rear [of the enemy] was in sight, some horse came
to Caesar from Quintus Atrius, to report
that the preceding night, a very great storm having arisen, almost all the ships
were dashed to pieces and cast upon the shore, because neither the anchors and
cables could resist, nor could the sailors and pilots sustain the violence of
the storm; and thus great damage was received by that collision of the ships.
