DESTRUCTION OF AN ARMY HOSPITAL BY STORM.

DESTRUCTION OF AN ARMY HOSPITAL BY STORM. The destruction effected by the storm of October 2 near Fernandina, Fla., has not been noted in the newspapers, as telegraphic and railroad communications were interrupted for so long after the event, but reports recently received by the War Department show that the hospital of the Third Division, Fourth Army Corps, was completely swept away and the military part of Fort Clinch materially damaged. The weather was threatening during the night of October 1, and the storm broke with great fury about 7 o'clock next morning. The barometer stood at 29.02 inches, the wind was estimated at 100 miles per hour and the sea rose to such an extent as to constitute what is usually called a tidal wave. Fernandina suffered severely. Many buildings collapsed before the force of the gale. The water was six to eight feet deep over many of the docks, and tugs and other light vessels http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA American Medical Association
