Lawrenceburg, IN Flood, Jan 1907

Alarming Situation.

LAWRENCEBURG, Jan. 20.---The situation here today was most alarming, the conditions almost approximating those of the flood of 1881. With the waves of the Ohio splashing over the levee which protects the town and the certain knowledge that rains already fallen will bring the torrent over the barriers within a few hours, the people left in this city passed a sleepless night.

The town is ten feet below the top of the levee, and the whole city may be submerged from three to nine feet. The money loss in that event would be close to $1,000,000.
