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.
The flood has become infamously known because of a tax which was levied in order to help rebuild. The tax is still in place today, long after all rebuilding has been completed.
The flood devastated several cities in Pennsylvania including the capital Harrisburg, but Johnstown and Pittsburgh were hit the hardest.
