STORM – Gale Heavy Rain on North East Coast

STORM – GALE HEAVY RAIN on the NORTH EAST COAST
The north-east coast, in common with other parts of the country, was visited by a northerly gale on Monday, accompanied with heavy rain. There has been nothing like it known in Redcar in July in the memory of the oldest fisherman. At high water on Monday night the sea reached nearly up to the Esplanade, and the pleasure boats, bathing machines, etc., had to be removed from their usual standings on the beach and placed beyond the reach of the tide. The gale abated on Tuesday, and yesterday the weather was finer than it had been before the season. As was to be expected, this disagreeable change in the weather put a stop to the influx of visitors, though it is hoped that this will prove but temporary, as the glass is steadily rising, and there is at length a prospect of weather becoming more settled.
