The next few weeks will mark the 50th Anniversary of the flood of '65.

We would love to fill this thread with stories and memories from those that witnessed the events surrounding that epic flood.

I'll add videos and photos every so often to share.

Thanks.

I remember everyone at school getting called into the auditorium and we were told school would be cancelled until further notice. We weren't home two hours and our driveway was covered with water. I don't think I left home for almost two weeks.

Around the 7:12 mark - great view of Main St. looking east toward the river and a boat that makes a left turn from 3rd St.

Remember there was no dike so you could see the water rising towards town with nothing to stop it. Jerry Hendrickson And I canoed around town. We had to go to Hendricksons house and secure the piano which was just floating around the first floor. At one point ice floes were floating down highway 93 and some of us had to don floatation suits and direct the ice bergs from smashing in to houses. As the water approached the houses the fire department would pump water into the basements to keep them from collapsing. I feel guilty about it but it felt like a big adventure...Ich bin ein River Rat
