Flood damage


Flood damage


Black and white image of flooded property. A house and sheds are visible, and a partially submerged car. Though museum records give no specific date for this image, it is likely that these images are from 1964, either in January when rain and melting snow caused a small dam to break and caused localized flooding in Washington County, and or, more probably, from the 100-year-event 'Christmas Flood' event that impacted the entire Pacific Northwest region between December 18, 1964 and January 7, 1965 and caused hundreds of millions of dollars in damage and 17 deaths in Oregon.
