 Januray 26, 1937 Cincinnati Ohio River Flood article

"River Near 80 Feet; Water Supply Low

Help Rushed

In Record Crisis

Rising Water Spread Through Ohio Valley

Refugee Total Leaps To 550,000 Mark

Red Cross Appeals For $4,000,000 "Chest"

Martial Law Proclaimed In Louisville - More Than 103,00 Listed As Homeless In Ohio

Flood tides of the Ohio River are the highest the valley has ever experienced - Monday night continued to advance over already paralyzed cities and smaller communities as Federal and state agencies rallied to cope with the greatest crisis the area ever has known

With crests of at least 80 feet; perhaps slightly more, forecast for the Ohio Valley from Huntington, W. Va., to Cincinnati, and with the already greatly distressed area from Cincinnati down to Cairo, Ill., waiting for additional rises, the only ray of hope Monday night was the fact that no rain had fallen for 24 hours and a forecast that there would be no more for at least 48 hours."
