(KOGO) A big storm hit San Diego last week and uncovered an old shipwreck on Coronado Beach. 

It was known as the Monte Carlo, a 300-foot gambling casino that crashed on the beach on New Year's Eve 1936. A major storm broke mooring cables 3-miles offshore. Local evangelists at the time called it a "Sin Ship" and even prayed for it to crash.
