The Great Storm. November 27th, 1703
R C, pseud. [Richard Cope]
Meteorology, Vulcanology, Providence, Eschatology, Piety
Describes the storm, which included 'appearances in the heavens that resembled lightning', but which the author considers were probably 'meteors and fiery vapours' (370). Records that some 'imagined the tempest was accompanied with an earthquake; but of this there was no clear proof' (371). Views the storm and its abatement as acts of God.
