Re: “Question the Queen City: Hurricanes in the CLT

In 1916 two Category 4 hurricanes converged over western North Carolina causing more than three days of downpours; "Great Flood" on the Catawba River. West of Charlotte, the Catawba River crested at more than 47 feet. The flood water was nearly twice as deep as that of any previously recorded flood. At least 13 people died when a double-track railroad bridge over the river between Charlotte and Gastonia gave way. The crews had been trying to secure the bridge when it washed out. A few survivors were rescued from treetops the following morning.
