Fort Worth Flooding and Evacuation

Description: Shot by the staff of Congressman Jim Wright, this footage captures the aftermath of a flood in Fort Worth, most likely from 1957. In May of that year, after weeks of torrential rains across Texas, more than 4,000 people were evacuated from unprotected lowlands along local creeks and the West Fork of the Trinity River in Fort Worth. In the film, residents combat severe floodwaters, salvaging property out of their homes and evacuating by boat to higher ground. Wright also appears to survey the damage and help in relief efforts.
