Unforgettable Rampage

Record #:
The Great Flood of 1916 wreaked destruction in Western North Carolina. After a recording breaking 22 inches in 24 hours, the French Broad crested at over 23 feet. Memories of the resulting devastation in Asheville, Henderson County, Rutherford County, and Gaston County, still haunt the area. Building codes and general awareness keep Western North Carolina citizens prepared for the next major storm.
