An avalanche in the Lower Battery forced Cyril Garland and family to leave their home after their home was hit. A photograph in Daily News shows only the side of the house was not buried by snow. Area residents left the Battery in anticipation of a larger avalanche but returned to their homes several days later after the threat had passed.
