Dreadful Storm at Tamworth. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 12 March 1870

Dreadful Storm at Tamworth.       One of the most terrific storms that has ever been witnessed in this part of the colony occurred on Friday afternoon, which has done a great deal of damage to properties of all descriptions in Tamworth.   The particulars as abridged from the Examiner are as follows:--The weather in the beginning of the week was of a tempestuous character, and indicated a change more particularly on Monday and Tuesday, when it was such as seldom experienced. It blew a perfect gale and carried with it such clouds of dust that houses on the opposite side of the street were rendered for several minutes at a time in- visible. This lasted for several hours each dlay, and was succeeded in the evening by light showers of rain, which, however, did not allay the sweltering heat which prevailed. Wednesday and Thursday were dull and cloudy, the wind which occasionally chopped right round from the south-east to the north-west a...

THE FLOODS AT TAMWORTH AND ARMIDALE. The following further particulars, wmcn we abridge from the Examiner, are to hnnd this morn ing : It appears that the . area visited' by the reoent storm at Tamworth , was comparatively small, extending- in a lino from BÓuth-east tb north-west about twenty miles.
