Holbrook, AZ Flood, Mar 1891

Floods in Arizonia.

HOLBROOK, ARIZ., March 25.---A heavy rain storm prevailing in this section the last two days has caused the little Colorado river to rise. If the river continues high some valuable property will be washed down the stream. The railroad had men and work trains working all last night to prevent washouts. Citizens of Holbrook have been protecting the town by putting in brush and treading the river bank.
