The mercury dipped to a possible all time low this morning when it dropped to a minus seven between 6 and 8 a.m., according to the instruments at the sewer plant. Coal companies here reported that they were out of coal and would not be able to get any. It was estimated that about one third of the homes in the area heated by coal. The Cleveland Natural Gas Company reported no shortage of gas, while the Cleveland Electric System revealed it was operating at an all-time high. Clevelanders are “desperate for heat,” one coal company official said today. An official at the Carroll Coal Co. confirmed reports that a shortage of coal had hit the Cleveland area. Another official at the Delay Wilson Coal Company said the shortage was all over the country. The Carroll Coal Co. spokesman said he called two mines, one in West Virginia and one in Kentucky. Operators of both mines told the Cleveland man their mines were shut down and didn’t know when the miners would be able to go back to work. The West Virginia mine had seven feet of snow while the Kentucky mine had 48 inches. Over the past weekend Clevelanders were desperate for coal. Carroll received one car of coal Friday and another one Saturday. Traffic piled up two blocks long in an effort to get the coal, which was probably the only coal in this area. The local company official said they tried to divide the small amount of coal so everyone could have some, but the coal didn’t last long. “We feel we have done the best we can in this situation,” he said today. Telephones at the local coal companies have been constantly ringing but when the coal shortage will end cannot be reported at present. One company had nearly 500 calls Monday, an official said. If the coal shortage did end in the next few days, Clevelanders would have some four or five days to wait for the coal to be transported here. One official said that if they order cars of coal today they would probably not receive the coal until this coming Sunday. It takes that long for it to be shipped here. The minus seven topped by four degrees the three below reported Monday morning. This is said to have been the coldest February since 1889. more
