Weather Disasters in the Great Black Swamp
"We may achieve climate, but weather is thrust upon us."
William Sydney Porter (O. Henry)
The most disastrous flood in Ohio's history was probably the one which occurred in March 1913. These men are rowing down a Defiance, Ohio street. Edward Bronson Collection( MS 454 Original negative owned by Defiance Public Library. Northwest Ohio is not famous for its weatherat least not in the same way that New England is famous for its winters or that Florida is famous for its tropical climate. Thanks to the clearing of the Great Black Swamp, the wind blows more freely here than elsewhere in the state (Bowling Green is fondly called "Blowing Green" by many locals), but for the most part, the climate is typical of the midwestern United States. There are four identifiable seasonshot summer, cold winter, cool, wet spring and fall, enabling farmers to grow corn, small grains, and vegetables. Within this climate pattern are the day-to-day changes in the weather with which we all live. Catastrophic weather is so memorable that the events serve as milestones. Floods, tornadoes, and blizzards disrupt lives and destroy property. The tornadoes that did so much damage in northwest Ohio in November 2002, killing five people, will be remembered for many years to come. What resources will future historians draw on to learn about the effect this and other large storms had on the people and the economy of this region?

The Archival Chronicle presents a new featureThe Gallery, highlighting photographs from our collections which illustrate the topics of selected issues. Our title photograph for this issue is from the Edward Bronson Collection , documenting the effect of the March 1913 Flood on Defiance, Ohio. Flood, 1913Defiance, Ohio "Water Floods Press Rooms" "On account of high water flooding the press room of the Crescent-News, it was impossible to print the semi-weekly today and it is possible the first issue of this week may have to be discontinued. It was impossible to operate the big Duplex newspaper press and it was necessary to print the Crescent-News today on a job press therefore the paper is only four pages and not up to its usual standard." Defiance Crescent-News , Tuesday, March 25, 1913, page 1. "Two Bridges Hit in City" Defiance Crescent-News , Wednesday, March 26, 1913, page 1. "Rivers Break All Former Records" "As a result of the downpour that has existed over the Maumee Valley since Sunday morning, Defiance today experienced the highest water on record, even breaking the high water record of 1884. The rains extended over the entire area of six thousand square miles drained by the Maumee River and water from swollen creeks rushed into the main streams at a volume that forced it down on the Maumee river at a rapid rate." Defiance Crescent-News , Tuesday, March 25, 1913, page 1.

Any opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this material are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Science Foundation.
This is a report of the first phases of a study of response to the blizzard conditions by people living in Buchanan County, Virginia, during the winter of 1995 - 1996. It is intended to add further to the body of knowledge about how people respond to some of the difficulties associated with winter blizzard conditions. The research question as stated in our proposal to the Natural Hazards Research and Applications Information Center was ". . . to examine the problem of how people help one another in dealing with the problems created by blizzards. We are especially interested in the coping behavior which takes place during the peak intensity of the storm, when it is impossible or almost impossible to move about."

The Blizzard of 1978
Seacoast SAD , February 15, 1978
Although this section of High Street is at least a half mile from Hampton Beach, it still bore the full brunt of the coastal flooding, causing residents to evaduate the area. The big blizzard of '78 has finally passed, leaving in its wake tons of debris, ten foot drifts, flooded homes and a calamitous situation along the entire New England Seacoast. Most of those evacuated at the peak of the storm have returned home to begin the massive cleanup which a storm of this size entails. Hundreds of residents sustained automobile damage through flooding, with many folks finding their cars blocks away from where they last parked. The statistics tell the story. Boston's Logan Airport totaled 27 inches of snow on Tuesday, Seacoast accumulation ranged from 15 to 24 inches, with drifts reaching heights of ten to fifteen feet and more. Wind velocity was measured as high as 80 miles per hour at the peak of the storm. Tides, because of the full moon, peaked at 14 feet above normal, the cause of most of the major area flooding. The immediate Seacoast area was the hardest hit, with many Hampton and Rye Beach residents evacuated amidst five foot tides along their streets. Plum Island residents were evacuated also by the National Guard. We had a chance to interview some Hampton and Salisbury residents. The following is an eyewitness account of the evacuation proceedings.

Homeland Security in Iowa How to Be Prepared What is Terrorism? Terrorism is the use of force or violence against persons or property in violation of the criminal laws of the United States for purposes of intimidation, coercion or ransom. Terrorists often use threats to create fear among the public, to try to convince citizens that their government is powerless to prevent terrorism, and to get immediate publicity for their causes. Terrorism Facts Before the September 11, 2001, attacks in New York and the Pentagon, most terrorist incidents in the United States have been bombing attacks, involving detonated and undetonated explosive devices, tear gas, and pipe and fire bombs. The effects of terrorism can vary significantly from loss of life and injuries to property damage and disruptions in services such as electricity, water supply, public transportation and communications. One way governments attempt to reduce our vulnerability to terrorist incidents is by increasing security at airports and other public facilities. The U.S. government also works with other countries to limit the sources of support for terrorism.
