Homer Root, of Greenwood, was in town Monday, and reported that the storm of Saturday night was the worst he had ever seen in Greenwood. The wind was on the rampage and acquired the velocity of a regular tornado. A great deal of timber was blown down and small buildings and shad trees were demolished. There was no injury to persons. The storm passed over this city high in the air; the flashes of lightning were dazzling in brilliancy while the roar of thunder was continuous. It was well for our people that the war of the elements was so high up.
