The Martin brothers, music dealers on W. Fourth St., Dayton, were in Washington C. H. and stopping at the Cherry House at the time of the terrible cyclone Tuesday evening,” commented a local paper. “They say the scene is indescribable, and thoughts of it are horrifying. The appearance of the storm cloud as it approached the town and the roaring of the merciless tempest were most appalling. As the cyclone approached the doomed city with furious speed it seemed there were three funnel-shaped clouds united at the top. The upper part of the cloud was jet black while the trunks were the color of fire.
“They say the property loss has been placed too low, that it will reach a million dollars in Washington C. H. and vicinity. It had a whirling movement, twisting off trees, lifting up houses, stables and sheds many feet and then dashing them to the earth. No words can fittingly describe the condition of the terror-stricken people after the storm had passed away. The Martin brothers left Washington Court House yesterday morning for Dayton before they had time to gather many of the particulars, but they saw the general ruin of that once beautiful town and heard the groans and cries of the wounded and bereft. The Cherry House, in which they were stopping was partly torn away, yet no lives were lost, though the inmates thought that the end of all things had come.
