Fears for Canal, 1897 ( more details)

Flooding Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information


Fears for Canal
The immense bodies of water surging into the canal and river is creating grave fears at Williamsport on account of the liability of breaks. The snow on the mountains is rapidly melting and the streams are becoming torrent like.

Tonight will be the test as to whether the banks will stand the rush all along the line. The canal is yet in good condition, and if the volume of water is not overwhelming all will be well.

Grand sight tomorrow.
