PHILADELPHIA, April 21.—A wind storm of cyclonic velocity swept over Philadelphia and vicinity late this afternoon doing considerable damage in many parts of the city and suburbs. In the few mintues that the storm lasted one woman was fatally injured and probably a score of other persons were hurt. In all parts of tha city roqfs of houses were blown off and walls blown down. A row of houses in course of construction in the northeastern section of the city was completely wrecked. The woman who is fatally injured Is Mrs. Margaret Long, aged thirty years. She was struck by a falling fence, which broke her back, three ribs, and an arm. Her two-year-old child, who was with her when the accident happened, was not injured.
