p.3 Yesterday's Storm - The storm of yesterday forenoon was one of the worst ever experienced on Lake Ontario, the gale blowing furiously. It is feared that considerable damage has been caused by it, but as yet no particulars have been received. The schooner Wawanosh, while coming down, was caught in the gale. Her fore topmast was carried away, as well as a considerable portion of her sails. She was also strained a good deal. She is now lying off the shipyard. The schr. Floriea (sic - Florida ?) had also a rough time coming down, her sails being badly torn by the gale. The propellor Asia ran back from Genesee, being unable to proceed further. The waves rolled over her considerably. The Captain reports the gale to be the worst he ever experienced.
