WEATHER BUREAU MISTAKEN
Remarkable Feature of the Tornado
Was the Number of Churches That
Were Torn Down-laid That at
Least Five Victims Will Die From
(By. Associated Press.)
Pittsburg, March 31.-The damage by
yesterday's storm will probably reach
several hundred thousand dollars. The
effects of the wind can be seen on all
sides today, houses, churches, and many
large plants unroofed, bridges partly dis
mantled, fences and trees torn down and
trolley, telephone, telegraph and fire
alarm wires prostrated.
A remarkable reature of the storm was
the number of churches that were in
jured. In Pittsburg and Allegheny and
the immediate vicinity eleven houses of
worship were more or less wrecked, but,
In only one of them-the Knoxville Pres
byterian church-did any casualties oc
cur. At the latter place, through the
chimney coming through the root, proba
bly 36 persons were injured.
The local churches damaged are St.
Peter's Protestant Episcopal, Belfleld
Presbyterian, St. John's the Eva igeillt,
Roman Catholic, and Eighth Street
Temple of Pittsburg; African Methodist
Episcopal and St. Wencelau's Bohemian
Roman Catholic of Allegheny; First En
glish Lutheran and United Presbyterian
of Braddocks; Knoxville Presbyterian,
St. Mary's Roman Catholic, McKees
Rocks and Robbins Run United Presby
terian, McDonald. Pennsylvania.
The casualties, as far as have b..en re
ceived, Will not number more than 60'
people injured, of whom five or six are
likely to die.
Those probably fatally hurt were in
jured at the Knoxville Presbyter ian
church and the BIohemian Run United
A peculiar feature of the stoim was
that the weather bureau records show
only a maximum velocity of wind of 36
miles an hour. Colonel Frank Ridge
way, chief of the Pittsburg weath'*z bu
reau, says it was only a squall, likely to
occur at any time this season of the
ytar. The condition were cyclonic.
Dispatches from surrounding towns in
westcrn Pennsylvania, eastern Ohio and
West Virginia report heavy damages
from the storm, but no fatalities.
