One man was drowned and property damaged to the amount of $100,00, following a cloudburst in the canyon above here late this afternoon. The water poured out of the canyon several feet high and carried with it huge boulders and mud. The torrent raced through Main street, inundated cellars and did much damage to merchandise. Two blocks of track of the Rio Grande railroad at the north end of the town were washed away.
Louis Oldham, a farmer, 55 years of age, whose ranch is just below the mouth of the canyon, was swept away in the flood.

Read the entire story in the Ogden Standard Examiner June 20 and 21, 1918.
