DEE SHIPS IN THE STORM. + A VESSEL ABANDONED. During the severe weather of the past week two Dee ships encountered the full force of the storm, namely, the Dora and Emrys, both owned by Messrs. Coppock, Carter and Com- pany. The Dora left Mostyn Deeps on Wednes- day bound for Douglas (Isle of Man) with a cargo of bricks. When down the Welsh Coast she experienced the full force of a terrific gale, the crew having to abandon the ship when near Conway River. The lifeboat was launched, the crew of which succeeded, when the gale moder- ated, in getting the ship into Deganwy in a sink- ing condition, the huge seas having made a clean breach over her. The result of the ship's becoming unmanageable was that the steering gear was carried away, and the ship became helpless. The Emrys left the port on W ednes- day bound to Belfast, and putting to sea experienced very rough weather. The crew ultimately navigated her to Peel, near Barrow, and while riding at anchor here she was driven ashore during a severe squall. It is not expected that the ships have sustained much damage, but so far the extent cannot be properly ascertained.
