July 4, 1969: Independence Day Flood

flooding and damage in Stark County

This image of Massillon illustrate 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 Ottowa 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.
