One hundred years ago this week, a series of three low pressure systems arrived over the mid-west one after the other as another low pressure system in the east acted as a road block. Stalled, they dumped 12 trillion gallons of water on the Ohio Valley, causing widespread floods and causing a thousand deaths, half of them in Ohio. Wednesday at 9 on the Sound of Ideas, we look back at the flood of 1913. A century later, could it happen again?
