It Killed One Man and Started Things Moving at Fort Worth
Three Churches, Fifty Dwellings, a School
Building and Other Structures Wrecked.
Fort Worth, Tex., May 22.A heavy windstorm, blowing at the rate of 70 miles an hour, struck this city from the southwest at 6:30 Sunday night. Part of the west wall of the Texas & Pacific passenger station was blown in, and John Young, a train dispatcher, killed. The storm was most severe west of the city, and all telephone and telegraph wires in that direction are down. A passenger on a Texas & Pacific train from the west reports that the town of Mineral Wells was partly blown away. One church building belonging to the African Methodist Episcopal congregation here was demolished. Many business buildings lost their roofs, including the First national bank building, a seven story structure.
