Oddity of 1941
A freak windstorm, which lasted less than ten minutes, ripped down Hazard's Main Street and caused a considerable amount of damage. Most of the harm was confined to the Leader Store's front where ten large pieces of plate glass were broken and merchandise picked up and deposited 200 feet away at the end of an adjoining alley. A large neon sign was blown over and besides being damaged extensively, tore numerous holes in the roof. Skylights in the Major Store building were broken out.
