Flooding in downtown Harrisburg

The Johnstown flood of 1936, a city devastated during the Saint Patrick's Day Flood, was a severe flood which devastated the downtown and surrounding area of Johnstown, Pennsylvania.[1]

The flood has become infamously known because of a tax which was levied in order to help rebuild.[2] The tax is still in place today, long after all rebuilding has been completed.[3]

The flood devastated several cities in Pennsylvania including the capital Harrisburg, but Johnstown and Pittsburgh were hit the hardest.[4]
