Storms, Whitehaven

May 12. A most tremendous thunder-storm commenced at Whitehaven, about 5, and continued for an hour, accompanied by a heavy fall of hail stones. Its course was nearly from South to North. Copious showers of rain succeeded. Mr. Murray, a drayman at Parton Brewery, was on the road with a dray, when the horse took fright at the thunder, and he was found not long after speechless, and apparently insensible. He expired early next morning. It is supposed that the dray had passed over his back.
