Falls River Flood of 1982 – A Second Look

Thursday, Jan 24, 2013 7:00p
Essex Town Hall Essex, CT

In 1982, Essex experienced one of the most devastating floods that it has ever seen. Within three days’ time that June, an astronomical amount of rain bombarded the state. Running through Essex, the normally innocuous Falls River soon became swollen, tearing away its banks with the houses upon them. Come hear about it! There will be a slide show as well as photos, newspaper articles, plaques and awards from the time. Guests are encouraged to tell their stories of the event.
