THE WORST DAMAGE: This is what was left of the home of Mr. and Mrs. Karl R. Guthe of 845 Brookwood Pl. after a gas explosion set it afire at the height of yesterday's storm. A tree in front of the house was blown over and its roots snapped a gas main leading into the house. Luckily, no one was in the house at the time of the blast.

A YEAR'S DIFFERENCE: This is how the spot at 845 Brookwood Pl. appears today a year after the city's "worst" storm. Prof. and Mrs. Guthe sold their house site and final touches are now being applied to a new four-unit apartment house erected there. The Guthes moved to 1407 Ferdon Rd. after their home was destroyed.
