Limerick, PA Storm Wrecks Revival Tent, Aug 1932
STORM WRECKS REVIVAL TENT.
THREE WORSHIPERS INJURED, PANIC ENSUES AS WIND HALTS SERVICES.
Pottstown, Aug. 7 (UP) - More than 125 worshipers were thrown into a panic tonight when the tent in which they were holding evangelical services at Limerick, four miles east of here, was blown down during a severe wind and electrical storm.
Two persons were known to be injured.
The church services were being conducted by the Rev. H. O. Musser of Lancaster, Pa., and under the supervision of the United Brethren in Christ Church.
The most seriously injured was FRANK POLEY of Limerick. His condition was not believed serious.
The other victim was a woman, whose identity was not revealed.
As friends started out in an automobile to hunt for a doctor, C. S. Hunsicker, who operates a garage directly across the way, said an unidentified mendicant, who had sought shelter from the storm had been injured, too, but disappeared.
The Brothers of Christ of Graterford had started the tent evangelical meetings about two weeks ago with the last scheduled for next Tuesday night. Every seat was taken when the services started tonight.
