Johnstown Flood

Viewers are immersed in the tragic events of May 31, 1889, as the worst flood in North America hit Johnstown, Pennsylvania. Narrated by Richard Dreyfuss, Johnstown Flood is based on the accounts of those who survived the 50-foot wall of water and subsequent greed that devastated the Conemaugh River Valley. Johnstown Flood brings the tragedy to life through documented and illustrated first-hand accounts from survivors, as well as live-action and period photographs and engravings.
