Flood Damage Images - 2001
 
July 17-18, 2001

Beginning late the night of July 17, 2001, a stalled front produced heavy thunderstorms that raced successively from northwest to southeast across Butler County. A narrow band from Milford Township southeast through Liberty and West Chester Townships received up to eight inches of rain within a three to four hour period. Flash flooding from the storms caused millions of dollars in damage and several deaths in southwest Ohio, triggering the declaration of a federal disaster.

Below are some photos of road, bridge, culvert, and property damage that resulted from that night's deluge.
