Snow and Wind

In 1918 , a snowstorm downed the city's fairly new power lines and left Paragould covered . Shown in the photo Court St. (at left) courtesy Sue Cline , are the old post office the Danville building and the present city hall. Tornadoes have also been frequent vistors , with several deaths reported in the late 1800's. Shown below , in a photo from Russell Carmickle , is wreckage from a 1947 storm.
