Sioux City, IA Flood, Jul 1902

Much Damage Done

Sioux City, Ia., July 10. - Damage to the extent of many thousands of dollars has been done in the bottomlands southeast of Sioux City by floods. Rain has ceased falling and the worst is believed to be over. Railroads have suffered severely from washouts, and their loss will be very heavy. Farmers, however, are the greatest sufferers. Small streams, usually a few yards wide, are swollen rivers miles in width. Reports from towns near by tell of heavy loss. Oto, Hornic, Luton and Mapleton are flooded and surrounded by vast expanses of water.
