January 8 Big Blow at Dunolly

A severe storm caused havoc at Dunolly and Bromley with many orchards and houses wrecked, a large number of roads and culverts damaged. Mr Willcox, licensee of the Junction Hotel at South Dunolly had the roof ripped from his double storey hotel with the ceilings, furniture, clothing, bedding and pictures destroyed by water. Stables, sheds, dairy and fruit trees at the rear were completely destroyed, many houses and businesses were unroofed with several chimneys blown down.
