July 4, 1969: Independence Day Flood
This image of Massillon illustrates some of the flooding and damage in Stark County during the Independence Day floods. The heaviest rain of July 4-5, 1969 (10-14 inches), fell in a band heading southeast from Ottawa County to Wayne and Holmes Counties. Massillon was just east of that area but suffered its fair share with 6 or more inches of rain.
