Culloden, GA Hail Storm, Apr 1908

HAIL STONES AS BIG AS PARTRIDGE EGGS

CULLODEN, Ga., April 27.---This section was visited Sunday afternoon by a destructive hail which did great damage to growing crops and fruit orchards. Mr. W. C. Jones and D. E. Rumph were perhaps the greatest losers for the hail was heaviest on their farms. Many of the stones were larger than partridge eggs.
