That city in East
and lots and lots
Texas which turns out piano players
of Texas oil is tidying.up after
pre-dawn tornado generated by a fast-moving cold
front. The weather bureau ventured a damage estimate
of about 30-thousand dollars -- but Kilgore officials
said they expected that would be only a fraction of the
loss. The tornado could have touched down almost any-
where and somebody's oil rigf would have been affected.
The "somebody"(this morning was the General American
Oil Company of Kilgore.
Two of its heavy derricks,
weighing 14-hundred pounds apiece, were twisted and
thrown to the ground by the powerful winds. One is
84 feet long and the other 94 -- it was the longer one
that clunked down on the cab on an international truck,
which was caused heavy damage and which, fortunately,
was empty at the time.
Here’s what’s next.
