Essex, Connecticut – January 24, 2013 – In 1982, Essex experienced one of the most devastating floods that it has ever seen. Within three days’ time that June, an astronomical amount of rain bombarded the state. Running through Essex, the normally innocuous Falls River soon became swollen, tearing away its banks with the houses upon them. The Ivoryton Library and the Essex Historical Society are hosting “Falls River Flood of 1982 – A Second Look” at the Essex Town Hall on January 24, 2013 at 7 pm. Attendees will hear the intriguing story and details as told by Essex Town Historian, Chris Pagliuco. There will be a slide show as well as photos, newspaper articles, plaques and awards from the time. Guests are encouraged to tell their stories of the event. Refreshments will be served and there is no charge for admittance. For more information contact the Essex Historical Society at (860) 767-5011 or the Ivoryton Library at (860) 767-1252.
