History of Columbiana County, Ohio - Harold B. Barth, Chapter XXIV, MISCELLANEOUS, Historical Publishing Company 1926

Two outstanding hail storms have visited East Liverpool in the years of its existence. The first of these was on June 10, 1870 when frozen pellets to the depth of four inches fell within a three-mile space from the old Abner Martin farm on the east and Kuntz's Crossing on the west and extended an immeasurable distance north and south. On that date late in the afternoon, as he and two boy companions were searching for a lost cow between the site of the present George L. McClintock home on the Lincoln Highway and Ross Meadows, W. A. Calhoun, pottery architect, then 14 years old, had to take refuge under a tree, so fiercely continuous was the icy dropping The later walk homeward through the shifting, melting mass in bare feet was an ordeal yet vividly remembered after more than half a century.

The second occurred on the afternoon of March 19, 1921 and preceded a heavy downpour. So sudden was the frigid visitation that persons were caught in automobiles from which they were with difficulty realized to the protection of adjacent buildings. A great deal of damage was done within the city limits when windows of homes, churches and business houses were broken all over the city. The spectacle the following day and for an interim afterwards was such as to suggest an attack by an invading army that generously used the grape and canister of pre-world war days.

Hyperlinking, or as it is also called framing, without permission is not permitted.
Legally speaking framing is still in a murky area of the law though there have been court cases in which framing has been seen as violation of copyright law. Many cases that were taken to court ended up settling out-of-court with the one doing the framing agreeing to cease framing and to just use a regular link to the other site.
The East Liverpool Historical Society pays fees to keep their site online. A person framing the Society site is effectively presenting the entire East Liverpool Historical Society web site as his own site and doing it at no cost to himself, i.e. stealing the site.
