Great Flood of 1936: The Connecticut River Story
It was the greatest disaster ever recorded along the Connecticut River, making 430,000 people homeless and leaving over $500 million worth of damage in its path. (In today's dollars, the cost would have been over 6.5 billion!) Filmmaker Ed Klekowski returns to chronicle the flood that devasted 12 states, including most of New England in 1936.
