Caption

The Ohio River flood of 1937 took place in late January and February. With damage stretching from Pittsburgh to Cairo, Illinois, one million people were left homeless, with 385 dead and property losses reaching $500 million ($8 Billion in 2012 dollars). Federal and state resources were strained to aid recovery, as the disaster occurred during the Great Depression and a few years after the Dust Bowl. Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, and Illinois were all seriously effected.
