The statewide extent of death and destruction in the Flood of March 23-27, 1913 exceeds all other weather events in Ohio history, justifying the title of "Ohio’s greatest weather disaster." Rainfall over the state totaled 6-11 inches and no section was unaffected. Most of Chillicothe was under water.
