The heavy rain which was accompanied by wind and a. lightening Sunday seemed to visit the western section of the State pretty srene rally. Although the storm was very severe in this section we have heard of no serious dam age done by it. i ne Salisbury ow says: An inch and a quarter was the rail in Salisbury but at other places in the county it was heavier. At some places south and west there was hail heavy enough to break off twigs ijul il uiu oniy sugnt aamag-e. Corn in some localities was blown down considerably. Lightening struck several times about the town but it hit no houses. At Asheville lightening struck several houses. The Citizen says: ml What proved to be the heaviest thunderstorm of the year came upon Asheville yesterday afternoon. The artillery of the heavens crashed in deafening explosion, the lightening cut its zigzag- way through the clouds, with daz zling vividness, and for a time the rain poured in torrents. A drop in the mercury followed the storm and continued to day. The Durham Sun says: That was indeed a hard wind rain and thunderstorm that struck this section Sunday night. It was what miirht be termed alittle stronger than a 44gulley washer and trash mover We are told that in some localities throughout thi section bridges were washed awav, and some fences that had stood for years are trone Corn on some bottoms and lowlands is drowned out.
