which struck Guaymas, Mexico on
October 4, of which only meagre ac
counts were received at the time,
were brought here by the passengers
and crew of the Mexican steamer
General Y. Pesquiera, which is in

storm, says the gale burst upon the
town about 3 o'clock on the morning
of October 4, and continued for two
days, when It suddenly stopped.
There immediately followed a terri
fic cloudburst, which worked the
greatest damage at the town of
Ortiz, about 40 miles back of Guay
mas. Soon after the storm broke the new
passenger steamer M. Herrerlas
dragged its anchors, and was driven
hard and fast ashore.
About ten schooners and smaller
vessels anchored In the harbor went
ashore soon after, and several be
came total lasses.
The Herrerias was later floated,
only slightly damaged. As the storm
gained its height seas of tidal wave
proportions rolled In from the ocean,
leaped over the wharves and flooded
the town. Half of Guaymas was
practically submerged during the
greater part of the storm.
Many strong buildings on the
water front were wrecked by the
gale and the pounding seas. Roofs
