The Ohio River Flood was so widespread that it destroyed people's homes at least 30 miles away from the Ohio River. The flood produced over two-hundred and fifty million dollars in damage. The cities of Paducah and Louisville was underwater. 35,000 people were evacuated from their homes. The average rain fall for the state of Ohio was 24 inches. Houses were flipped over and the whole state was destroyed. Now the state is fully prepared if another flood were to come around.
