Great Loss of Life in Five Southern States.
Thousands of Houses Destroyed—Hundreds of People Killed,
The States of Georgia, Alabama, North and South Carolina and Louisiana have been visited by one of the most destructive storms ever seen in the South. Thousands of houses were destroyed in an instant, hundreds of persons lost their lives, and many more were injured. – The tornado Ras particularly se-vere in Georgia and Alabama. An Atlanta (Ga.) dispatch says: One million dollars’ worth of property, 5,000 houses, and 300 to 400 lives are the forfeit paid to the terrible storm.
