TERRIBLE GALE AT LLAN- | ELLY. TRAINS BLOCKED. I A gale passed over Llanelly and district with terrific fury on Saturday, a.nd the strong running high tide was driven with great force against the boundary wall of the Great Western Railway between Llanelly and Burry Port. For over a quarter of a mile, huge seas washed er, the massive-masonary to a height of 30 or 40 feet. I Mr. W. Rees, permanent way inspector, and other servants of the company proceeded to the spot, and found that the line was impassable, consequent an the heavy seas and the wreckage that was being washed on to the metals. Both the up and down passenger trains were blocked up for about half an hour, and the passengers were greatly alarmed at the incident. After the tide had receded the line was found to be uninjured, and traffic was immedi- ately resumed. It is interesting to note that this part of the wall was broken and washed away by the gale in October last, but advantage has been taken during the re-construction of considerably strengthening this particular spot.
