Great Flood of 1916

In July, 1916, one of the worst flooding events ever recorded in the United States took place right here in western North Carolina. The remnants of two hurricanes passed over the area, with the second storm dumping over 20 inches of rain in a day in some communities. Hundreds of mudslides swept away homes, farms, and lives. Transportation routes in and out of the mountains were obliterated. Cities and towns on riverbanks became submerged in the floodwaters at lightning speed, leaving citizens clinging to trees and stranded on top of buildings as they prayed for rescue.
