Simultaneous phenomena

During one of the most violent earthquakes known up to that time (1897, I think) in Mexico, there was a glare in the sky that was thought by Mexicans to be volcanic, according to New Orleans Daily Picayune, June 22. In addition, deluges of rain fell, according to the San Francisco Chronicle, June 17, drowning some of the inhabitants of a Mexican town. This was apparently coincident with the earthquake in India (see next entry).
