Refugio Timely Remarks
“Big Tunder [sic] Storm Causes Some Damage”
The thunder storm which visited Refugio, and vicinity Tuesday night caused considerable excitement and some damage at about . Three oil wells close by, the Huddleston well, Mission Drilling Co., the Morgan-Fox in block 75, and the Independent Oil & Gas Co. Anna Reilly, caught fire, lightening igniting gas coming through the flumes at the top of gun barrels. The wells were shut in and the flames extinguished with little or no trouble and damage.
In town the homes of Mrs. M.F. Lambert and Mrs. Edith Clarkson were struck by lightning which blew out light and power fuses, and damaged telephonic connections. Other than the above, little damage was reported.
Refugio Timely Remarks
“Weather Breaks Old Records”
While cold weather records were being broken all over the state, Refugio and vicinity were not missed. A light fall of snow accumulated in protected places Saturday, and during the night the temperature dropped to as lows [sic] as 23 degrees. Heavy frosts and ice have prevailed for several mornings in succession. At this writing, Christmas morning, a more beautiful day could not be called for. Enough chill in the atmosphere to make things crisp in the bright sun shine. This weather may continue for some time to come with great satisfaction to everybody.
"High Wind Does Much Damage"
A windstorm of severe intensity struck Refugio Thursday evening
, throwing the town in darkness when the power service was
disrupted. A number
of derricks in the local and Greta fields were blown down.
The only casualty was Buck Millican, whose leg was
broken when he was caught under a falling derrick.
The full extent of the damage could not be learned early
Friday morning. Refugio
spent all of Thursday night without electric current.
