LOOKING BACK AT THE FLOOD OF 1994

June 12, 2014 

If you were living in Middle Georgia 20 summers ago, you remember the Flood of '94 all too well. Tropical Storm Alberto dumped three days of rain on the midstate, contributing to 31 deaths across Georgia. The Flint, Ocmulgee and Oconee rivers roared over their banks, turning streets into rivers and wrecking homes, roads and bridges. We’re looking for readers’ recollections of that trying time. How did the flooding affect you and your family? How did you cope? What do you remember most? Please email your memories in 300 or fewer words to Paulette Fountain at pfountain@macon.com. Please include daytime phone number. If you have pictures or video, please include them with your email. The deadline for submissions is June 22.
