The North Carolina Flood: July 14, 15, 16, 1916 By W. M. Bell Cover Image


Picture this: It's 1916, you live in Western North Carolina, the 1st World War is still raging, and it's been raining heavily for ten days. You and your family have to leave your home to seek higher ground because the rain is not stopping. It keeps going higher and higher; the farther you walk, the higher the water gets, until it's up to your neck. And yet, this is not the worst. Even as you feel the water around your neck, and you struggle to move, you are unaware that the worst is yet to come.

This is an inkling of what happened to the people of Western North Carolina in the flooding of 1916. What they experienced was a flood that redefined flooding as anyone had previously known it. A flooding that left destruction and death in its wake and an entire generation of survivors whose stories continue to live on.

In this book, Bell gives a detailed narration of the flood, one that will leave you stunned and slightly doubting, if there wasn't sufficient evidence to back it up.

This is the story of the 1916 North Carolina flood. Its beginning, its victims, its end, and its survivors.
