Storm, Watershed & Riverbank: Three Exhibitions Commemorating the 100th Anniversary of the 1913 Flood

In 1913, an unusually potent winter storm system caused a weather event that researcher Trudy Bell considers the United States’ most widespread natural disaster. Disastrous flooding of the five rivers that converge in downtown Dayton occurred when the equivalent of three months worth of rain fell during four days in March 1913.
