Agnes Flood Documentary Project


The goal of the Agnes Flood Documentary Project is to produce a 60-90 minute documentary that will be considered the definitive film on the 1972 Agnes Flood and its impact on the Wyoming Valley. The film will accomplish this goal by combining Agnes-related material from various sources, including:

All of this material is available, but unfortunately, it has never been pulled together into one place. That is the goal of this project. Equally important is the desire to show the resiliency and the spirit of the people of the Wyoming Valley and how they worked together to overcome what at the time was the greatest natural disaster in the history of the United States. It is hoped that the film will serve as an educational tool for generations to come and as a definitive historical reference.
