Johnstown Flood

2003 NR

May 31, 1889, marked the day that the South Fork Dam burst, causing one of the most horrific disasters in American history. The city of Johnstown, Pennsylvania, was consumed by a 40-foot wall of water that raced through its streets, killing 2,200 people along the way. Narrated by actor Richard Dreyfuss, this film conveys the panic and heartache of survivors who watched as Johnstown was left in ruins.
