Video Vault: Remembering the Agnes Flood

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

45 years ago Friday -- June 23, 1972 -- the remnants of Hurricane Agnes devastated much of the East Coast, including Northeastern and Central Pennsylvania.

The Hurricane spawned the Agnes flood -- dumping too much rain in too little time -- sending homes floating down streets.

Numerous businesses across our area also fell victim to Agnes' wrath -- among them was Knoebels Amusement Resort in Northumberland County.

Back in 1992, Newswatch 16's Marisa Burke revisited the damage at the park. She has our final Agnes look-back in this Video Vault.
