Hurricane Diane 60 years ago

It has been 60 years since Hurricane Diane caused so much devastation and flooding in the Lackawanna and Wyoming Valley's.  The flooding was widespread and even areas of the Pocono's flooded.  This flood  happened in August 1955 and is featured in the footage above.  This video is from WGBI-TV which is now WBRE-TV.   Besides this video there are other photos and video histories of the flood on the Lackawanna Valley Digital Archive.
