1852 - July 10 - Great Hail Storm

A correspondent, writing from Eden, Vermont, gives us an account of a severe storm of hail which passed over that place on the 22nd instant.

The hail stones measured three inches in circumference, and covered the ground to the depth of six inches completely destroying the crops of corn and grain, breaking and beating it into the ground, and doing much other damage. The hail demolished all glass exposed to its severity. Its extent was two miles in width and three miles in length, and rand east and west. The cattle were much bruised by the hail, and were left covered with bunches from the force of its blow. The forest trees were stripped of their leaves, and present a remarkable ragged appearance. The hail laid in heaps upon the ground for more than twenty-four hours. - Worcester Transcript.
