News account: "The blizzard which struck this section of Ohio [vicinity of Perrysburg] on Sunday [November 9] proved one of the most disastrous storms of the season and caused immense damage along the great lakes and cities along their borders... Cleveland is cut off from the rest of the world by a wreckage of telegraph and telephone wires and poles which has prevented trains entering or leaving the city."
