EIGHT ·MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, JANUARY 29 · 1937 FLOOD REFUGEES REACH FORMER HOME IN EMMETSBURG TELL OF SCENE OF INUNDATIONS Were Forced to Move From Higher', Ground at Evansville. EMMETSBURG -- Among first flood victims to reach .northwest Iowa alter fleeing from their Evansville, Ind.',"home, .were Mrs. F. H. O'Hallbran.and her daughter, Vivian, who arrived in Etn- metsburg after harrowing .experiences in the inundated Indiana city. The CTHallorans, former Emmetsburg residents, left Evansville Monday night on what railroad and city officials said would, be the'last train operating over that particular route. One thousand homeless refugees crowded the station, Miss O'Halloran said, many of whom were ill and suffering from exposure. "They were brought to the train in trucks and any other available v vehicles," she' related. "Families who had become separated in the confusion of evacuating their homes were frantically searching for parents 'or children and. the scene resembled one in wartime, with martial law in force everywhere. Everyone was clutching small bundles containing what little personal property had been salvaged and groups of women and children were huddled together in an effort- to keep warm, some already ill from influenza." Thought Beyond Danger. Their apartment located in one of the better residential districts of Evansvllle, the O'Hallorans saic that the neighborhood was reluctant to believe that effects of the flood would be felt in that part o: the city. In 1913, threatened floods, with water reaching a height of 47 feet failed to endanger that section of Evansville and residents ·were slow to realize the impending danger this time. "Friday night a -blizzard anc heavy snow/all hit Evansville, and Saturday we found water filling our garage," Miss O'Halloran said. "We noticed then that water was under the snow everywhere and that it was seeping into basements and gradually rising. Alarmed but still hopeful that the water would recede in our district, we' began considering plans to move elsewhere in the city." Works Win Rod Cross. But by Saturday night, the flood waters were approaching the porches of the buildings and Dr. Franklin O'Halloran, brother of Vivian and a member of the board .of directors of the Evansville Red Eyestrain starts when children begin to use their eyes.
