The Sandusky River

Flooding is a common condition along the Sandusky River, which begins north of Galion, Ohio, and empties into Sandusky Bay and then Lake Erie, north of Fremont. The flood of 1913 is generally considered to be the worst in terms of damage done, with 7.2 inches of rain falling between March 23 and March 27. The heavy rains caused damage throughout Ohio and the Midwest. The Sandusky River in Fremont crested nearly seven feet higher than any previously-recorded measurement, and over four feet higher than the flood of 1959.
