“At Augusta, the State's Chief Executive [Governor Happy Chandler], counted only 29 houses remaining in this village where, until 2 weeks ago, 1,800 persons resided.  The town was “wiped out” and streets obliterated, Chandler reported. He said officials were considering total abandonment of the Ohio River-front site in favor of another high on nearby hills.”  Cincinnati Enquirer, February 5, 1937
