The 1927 Flood in Vermont

  - 33:58

Originally uploaded to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g-YxIDkCVtg by Vermont Historical Society The torrential rains began on November 3, 1927. It had already been a wet October and rivers were swollen and the ground saturated. Nine inches of rain fell in a thirty-six hour period and horrendous flooding began. Though all of New England was affected, Vermont was devastated. The state flooded from Newport to Bennington, with the Winooski River Valley the hardest hit. Eighty-five people died and 9,000 were left homeless. Many of Vermont’s roads and over 1,200 bridges were washed away. The great Flood of 1927 would change Vermont forever as communities turned to the state, and the state turned to the federal government for assistance.

In New Orleans, the floods of 1927 are legendary.

That is a film worth it's weight in gold. History to be remembered.
