London Times, 25 September 1865, p. 10: RUSSIA. (Excerpt)

The Cronstadt papers give accounts of a fearful storm at Revel. It commenced on the 12th and lasted till the evening of the 13th of September. The damage done to the shipping has been considerable. On shore, threes of a hundred years' standing were blown down. Two merchantmen went down in the roadstead. The waves were so high that they dashed over the walls of the port. It also blew a gale at Cronstadt, but not like the tempest at Revel.
