It was first supposed that the cyclone that passed through Macomb county last week Wednesday did no great damage but this was a mistake. It is estimated $10,000 worth of damage was in done in Sterling to buildings alone, let alone the incalcuable damage done to fences, orchards, forests etc. The wind entered this county in the southwest corner of Sterling coming from Royal Oak, and laid everthing low in its path, which was about 125 feet wide. It lifted the new town hall off its foundation and demolished the school house in District No.2. John Licht, Fred Dill, Mr. Bowers, Carl Barg, Richard Sylvester, Chris Weier, Wm Fisher, each lost a barn. Fred Cartwirght has his house wrecked, and Patrick Hern had three barns blown away, the timber being scattered 80 rods away. Nothing of these buildings were left. The roofs of many other houses and barns or parts of them were blown away. We understand that considerable damage was also done in Chesterfield township.
