On this date: Dansville area devastated by hail storm (1877)

August 12, 1877 a mile-wide hailstorm wreaked havoc on local farmland; trees and cornstalks were stripped of their leaves, and some farms reported hail four inches deep on the ground, with stones as large as hen’s eggs. A tornado, twelve days later, must have almost seemed routine by then.


Image shown for reference only. Obviously not taken in 1877.
