Today's weather trivia: 5 October

1923: Torrential rains and record floods swamped Truro, NS, and nearby
villages, resulting in the destruction of bridges, flooded cellars, downed

breaking it below ground level. Sheaves of grain and drowned pigs floated
down the swollen Salmon River. The enlarged creek took out a barn from which
a horse disappeared forever.
