James Q. Troutman was a sixteen-year-old high school student who lived with his parents and younger brother at the corner of Dixie Highway and Myers Lane at the time of the 1937 flood. Although neighboring residences were flooded and water came within three feet of the house, the Troutman home remained dry. Two persons whose homes were flooded lived with the Troutman family for the duation of the flood. Mr. Troutman recalls what it was like during the flood. He discusses the method they used to keep up with what was happening during the flood and what they did to pass the time while waiting for the flood waters to recede. Mr. Troutman also talks about the weather leading up to the flood and how they became aware that there was going to be a flood. When the water receded, Mr. Troutman rode into the other parts of the city and observed the damage the flood had caused. Index available.
