Storms in the North

Dumfries, Sept. 28. During Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday last, there was an uncommon fall of rain, accompanied with very high wind, in the neighbourhood. The devastation, in consequence of the swelling of the different rivers and rivulets, is incalculable: great quantities of grain have been carried away, embankments destroyed, &c. ... ... The great flood on the 15th and 16th of November, 1807, was truly awful, both in the neighbourhood of Carlisle, and in this district; but we have had nothing of this sort to be compared with the present, since Feb. 1780.
