A few days ago, I mentioned here about the founding of the American Red Cross, and one of the first emergencies they responded to as a group. May 31st, 1889 was the day an earthen dam broke about 14 miles up river from the Johnstown, Pennsylvania. Nearly 5 billion gallons of water rushed down the river valley into the town. Almost everything in its path was destroyed, and over 2200 people lost their lives. The victims had very little success in recovering financially from the dam owners, but it was one of the first major cases that led to liability for responsible parties for just such events.
