The 1913 flood was one of Ohio's worst, many records of high water still stand today.

It took all the bridges out in Tiffin Ohio except the rail road bridge. Some engineer decided to run the train full of coal on the bridge for extra weight, that is the only thing that saved it. The other bridges gave way to houses and debree hitting them. Many of lives where lost also!

This would've been the Sandusky River, that empties into the West end of Sandusky Bay, about 8 miles or so from Sandusky proper. Makes me wonder, wasn't 1913 the same year that a huge flood of the Olentangy River wiped out large parts of Columbus Ohio? Might have been the same storm. And then there's the Blanchard River in Findlay, which floods at the drop of a hat...wonder if the same thing happened there...not far from Fremont.

Joe: That old idea of putting weight on the bridge was tried here in Cedar Rapids in 2008! They put 3 cars full of rock on the bridge to try and keep the railroad bridge from washing away - but mother nature won! At least they had lots of rock to work off latter in the summer when they had to drive cranes out on to the river to rebuild the tipped bridge!!!! John In Iowa
