1913: More than 360 are killed and 20,000 homes are destroyed in the Great Dayton Flood in Dayton, Ohio. In the days leading up to flooding, nearly 11 inches of rain fell throughout the Great Miami River watershed on already saturated soil, causing the river and its tributaries to overflow. The existing series of levees failed, flooding downtown Dayton with waters up to 20 feet deep.
