Turia - Photo supplied J.J. López Illueca
          On 16/February/1941 she was the first of the chain of ships that passed the notice that Santander was suffering a big fire that devastated much of the city. The land communications were completely cut. The Turia, that was berthed, began to transmit the distress call. The message was listened by Monte Ayala, that began to relay it being listened by the Cristina, which relayed it again. Finally the message was heard at La Coruńa, from where all Spain was warned.
