The Gale - Accident at Margate [1]

[1] About one o'clock on Sunday morning, when the gale was at its height, about a third of the corrugated iron roof of the High-level Waterworks, Margate, was carried away. Although weighing about four tons, it was doubled up into every conceivable shape and carried a distance of seventy yards, coming in contact with two cot¬tages in Sparrow Castle; it cut right through the roof, and settled down on the roof of a third house, which. was almost entirely demolished.
