1937 Flood In 1937, 75% of Dayton felt the floodwaters: over 7,000
people (out of a population of 10,000)  were forced out
of their homes, 392 houses were damaged too badly to
be repaired, and 51 houses simply lifted off their
foundations and floated down the river, never to be
seen, in Dayton, again.
