East Houghton Flood

User Comments:
• The flooding was caused by overflow of old Hubbell Dam at the head of Hubbell Avenue. The flood formed a lake on Florence Street covering the street railway tracks for two blocks. The cars continued to use the submerged tracks and the flood receded before the roadbed was seriously damaged. [Taken from a Daily Mining Gazette Article dated April 6, 1912.]
