Historic flood now detailed in a new book

washed_away.jpg

Local author Geoff Williams has written an extensive look at one of this area’s major natural disasters. He’s in the studio with our Barbara Gray to talk about his interest and research into the book Washed Away: How the Great Flood of 1913, America's Most Widespread Natural Disaster, Terrorized a Nation and Changed It Forever. While the city of Cincinnati wasn’t terribly impacted, surrounding areas like Loveland, Cleves and Dayton took the brunt.
